UN Forces vs Chinese Soldiers with New Soviet Machine Guns



As Chinese forces attempted a new advance into the South Korean city of Kapyong in April of 1951, all that stood in their way was a small brigade of Canadian, Australian, and New Zealander soldiers.

Outnumbered 10 to 1, the UN had to hold the line against a much better-armed force. While the Chinese were carrying new Soviet machine guns, the UN soldiers only had single-bolt-action rifles from World War 2.

With US reinforcements weeks away from arriving and a seemingly endless number of Chinese soldiers supporting the North Koreans, the small UN brigade at Kapyong had insurmountable pressure on their shoulders. If the city fell, the front line would be breached, almost assuring the total Chinese invasion of South Korea.

The Australian and Canadian forces then set up defensive positions in two hills overlooking the valley and established the few machine-gun posts they could manage as they prepared for the incoming attack. They knew an onslaught was coming, as their South Korean allies fled through the valley in disarray after losing a battle in the North.

As the sun began to set on the evening of April 23, 1951, the UN soldiers watched in disbelief at the Kapyong Valley below them as an approaching horde of Chinese soldiers was rushing their position.

With their South Korean allies bolting in a panic, it was up to them to stop the Chinese advance and hold the line at whatever cost.

  1. WOW! I JUST SAW A PICTURE OF MY DAD! @6:39 he is the 6th person from the right. He served with the 2nd battalion Princes Patricia Canadian light infinity and was at the battle of Kapyong in dog company. OMG I sure miss that grumpy S.O.B. but it does make sense now as to his short temper and zero tolerances for a jack ass son's behavior though.

  2. as a kiwi, i'm proud. there are just so many stories of us south pacific lads going over the top and winning the day. aussies too cause it's in the pacific.

  3. They'll analyze they don't tell the truth of why the Chinese came into the war. The fact is the UN attacked the Chinese City and basically blew the hell out of it. When the Chinese sent up soldiers to find out what happened they blew the hell out of them believing they were North Koreans. So the Chinese came into the war on the side of North Korea. This part of History is what the winning side doesn't want you to know

  4. Good stuff, some footage of Anzac would have lifted this productions worth in watching , yes there’s a difference in uniforms, accoutrement, rifles etc that do give it away .
    Just a thought

  5. Better armed and crazy larger numbers but the south Korean allied soldiers were extremely well trained. Even today canada doesnt give our soldiers advanced light defense equipment smh.

  6. Canadians throughout history have proven time and time again that their soldiers are tough as nails. Legend has it that Canadian soldiers bleed maple syrup. The syrup is so thick a chunck will stop bullets that would kill a normal man.

  7. After watching this and making the comparison to Ukraine, If NATO cannot get involved, then how about the UN forces.
    Same problem as back then but, geographically different. Maybe too close to home, it may be more acceptable to bomb someone else's home.

  8. When the Ausies were forced to retreat this left the Pat's position exposed only some not all of its positions were overrun by the Chinese before the Ausie artillery came! Please Please do research!These heros deserve as much and more!!!!!

  9. In SPITE of various comments here the Australians DID NOT have either artillery support from the N Z ers as they had NOT set up yet, nor did they have air support and were therefore NOT resupplied in any way. The Australians were DOWNHILL the Canadians were up on higher ground. The Chinese attacked the |Australians first and for 36 hours the Australians fought alone with NO support, they were just about ammunition and decided to withdraw and reform in front of the British Middlesex Regiment, the Chinese pursued them but stopped when the Australians stood again with re supply. So the Chinese wheeled UP the hill to attack the Canadians, who had, at this time Air Support and Artillery Support and this was the first time the Canadians had to fight AFTER they had been fighting the Australians for 36 hours , the CHINESE were the exhausted ones at this stage and going up hill they were decimated. This is the TRUE story and if you read the casualties you will see Canadian losses were MINIMAL because of their advantageous support which made the difference!

  10. Funny how you attempt to portray China as a powerful nation in 1951. They were just a bunch of peasants and farmers who trekked on foot from southern China thousands of miles away. No air power or ships or even radios. China had no artillery or tanks in the battle, did it? I think not.

  11. How many Know who the Most Treasonous POS "Leader was to Western Civilization while simultaneously Ruining the Empire (Clue) he was put in place to "presumably" safeguard and Protect? There were MANY Traitors in and To the longevity and Ultimate Survival of the Greatest Civilization in Human History that was still, in Historical Timeline Measure After the Dark Ages of the Mid-Millenium, in it's Beginnings and spreading Worldwide with it's start in Europe, of course, but ignited by the "American Revolution of 1775-76" or at least the Illusion or Orchestrated "War of Independence" in what was to be the United States of America.

    How many Knew that during the end of May and start of June 1940 that the Man who started out as a Painter in Austria, would offer to pull ALL of his Countries Military Out of France if the Traitor would just Call off the Declaration of War Against his Country when he had almost a 1/2 Million British, French and Belgian Troops stuck at DUNKIRK and facing instant Death and Annihilation when ALL he wanted was to Save Europe from a Communist Invasion that was Already in the works Proved by their Own Document's sold and traded away from the KGB Headquarters in UKRAINE after the Soviet Union dissolved in 1991 – 1993 or whatever year it was finished?? (READ: "American Betrayal" by Diana West from 2013 for Absolutely Shocking Treason NEVER before known or revealed)
    The "Austrian Painter" even expressed his Admiration for the Traitors Country, People, Culture, Mannerisms etc, and Hoped that the Traitors Country (Britain which was No Longer Great by Any measure and was OVER, FINISHED as a World Power as it IS today) and French Countries Military would join together and DESTROY the "Bolshevik" Communist, Luciferian Government, System and Murderous Psychopath's that were the Bolshevik Mass Murderer's that the Traitor had even written about with All the Truth's about the Lying, Conniving, Thieving and Mass Murdering Bolshevik Communist's themselves In a Editorial of One of his Countries Most read Newspapers of 1920 that saw Raving Reveiws for his Truth and Authenticity but Magically just Changed his allegiance from Humanity to "'Their"' Luciferian Zio-Communist Agenda (Because he was a Raving Alcoholic and Gambling Addict)? You Know, the Rothschild's is Who the Traitor was referring to and "'Their"' coreligionists' and Mason's too that the "Austrian Painter" had ALL of them Shutdown including ALL of "'THEM"' Out of Banking, Finance, Government Positions, and Especially the MS Media of the times which was Only Radio, Newspapers, Film and Publishing.

    YES, Yes….. the Traitor had a Cohort named Franklin D. Roosevelt, the TRAITOR American President who Hid Japan's "Declaration Of War Against the United States" for at least 7 Days because he was a 33rd degree "Freemason" and Needed the "Sneak Attack" to blow-off the Isolationist's like Charles Lindbergh and other's who Knew from the First World War WHO it was that was "Orchestrating" the Destruction of Germany and the "GREATEST MAN WHO EVER LIVED" ACCORDING TO THE GREAT HISTORIAN AND DOCUMENTARY PRODUCER Dennis Wise who Produced Many Documentaries I Can't name here EVEN THOUGH THIS POST ITSELF WILL PROBABLY BE SHADOW BANNED & NOBODY WILL SEE ANYWAY!!
    Truman & F.D.R. were F.M.'s and the Traitor was the "British Prime Minister WINSTON CHURCHILL" who is RESPONSIBLE for the Slow but Absolute END of WESTERN"CHRISTIAN CIVILIZATION" and because he was directed by the LUCIFER WORSHIPING Rothschild/Warburg Banking Family CABAL to Refuse "Uncle Adolph's" at least 3 Offers of Peace because Germany as the Greatest Threat to "'Their"' NWO that Only Real IDIOT'S Can't See being Orchestrated into Existence Right NOW with the Russia/Ukraine "WAR(?)" happening now and about to go into a World War 3 that these Psychopath's Want.

  12. The Commonwealth are some of the finest military in the world. Also the French Foreign legionnaires are worth mentioning here. They were fighting the VietMinh, also Communist in Vietnam. Domino theory in full effect.

  13. As A Canadian I can say that I'm more than proud of the actions of my countrymen. On the other hand I didn't know of this battle until I watched this video. Most military history really isn't taught in schools here. This is something I think should be changed.

  14. I'm not saying I know exactly what the soldiers went through , I did 2 TOD in Iraq , 03/07 and the Iraqis who said are our allies and willing to fight , for money ! , weapons , but as soon as a real firefight ensues they dropped weapons and ran , eventually caught and did the same with Taliban. Also the people had a general hatred for American soldiers and Marines. It was really infuriating and brought morale down, eventually we where fighting for each other and not them. I can't begin to know what they went through but have an idea.
