At the height of the Korean War, the United States and its United Nations allies successfully pushed back the North Korean and Chinese armies that threatened to take over South Korea.
However, this was not enough to stop the restless Chinese forces. Using overwhelming force and plenty of artillery, the Communists seized control of six outposts guarded by the outgunned and outmanned US Marines in October of 1952.
And just when everything seemed lost, and the Chinese were about to march into Seoul, the surviving Marines regrouped for one desperate last stand at a point known as the Hook.
The outcome of the Korean War now rested on their shoulders.
