MacArthur Observes the Shelling of Incheon, Korea, September 1950

US General MacArthur's amphibious landing at Incheon, a coastal city west of Seoul on the Yellow Sea, is perhaps the best known operation of the entire Korean War. Surprising communist troops and pushing back the tide of a DPRK advance that had cornered UN troops in the ROK's far southeast, this operation marked a significant turning point in the war that saw UN forces take the upper hand - for a time.
