Introduction

Having crossed the 38th Parallel and the Yesong River, the 1st Cavalry Division's first objective on the road to P'yongyang, the North Korean capital, was Namch'onjom. The North Koreans had lost heavily in the retreat from Pusan, including many of their weapons and their best soldiers and officers. The NKPA high command had to issue orders exhorting officers to prevent their men from throwing away their rifles. The North Koreans defending Namch'onjom received heavy bombardments from air strikes and artillery, yet seemed ready to fight.

Conclusion

With the help of accurately-delivered air strikes, the 7th Cavalry Regiment's 2nd Battalion captured the town against fierce North Korean resistance. The cavalry resumed its advance up the road to the North Korean capital, a march soon slowed by heavy rains as much as what remained of the NKPA.
