General Matthew Ridgway Oversees UN Retreat From Seoul During Korean War Ca. 1950Streaming Video - 1950
After China entered the Korean War in late 1950, United Nations (UN) forces under U.S. command were forced to make a long southern retreat. Matthew Ridgway, who was promoted to head of the Eighth Army after General Walton H. Walker was killed in an automobile accident, oversaw the retreat from Seoul. Ridgway's forces regained Seoul in March 1951, and President Harry S. Truman announced that he would seek peace negotiations that divided the country at the 38th parallel.
