Watch Fixed Bayonets! - Alternative Versions.
The premise of this film is factually based on Task Force Faith in the
Korean War:In late November 1950, the Chinese struck, along the
Chongchon River, and overran several ROK divisions and landed an
extremely heavy blow into the flank of the remaining UN forces. The
resulting withdrawal of the United States Eighth Army was the longest
retreat of an American unit in national history. In the east, at the
Battle of Chosin Reservoir (November 26December 13) a 3,000 man unit
from the US 7th Infantry Division, Task Force Faith, was virtually
wiped out, with numerous hand to hand fighting. The Marines fared
better; though surrounded and forced to retreat, they inflicted heavy
casualties on the Chinese who committed 6 divisions while trying to
destroy the Marines.
Of the Task Force Faith and the 2,500 troops trapped by the Chinese,
about 1,500 eventually made it back to American lines, the majority of
them wounded or badly frostbitten. Roughly 300 able-bodied survivors
were formed into a provisional battalion which was attached to the
Marines and fought with them in the breakout of the 1st Marine Division
during the remainder of the Battle of Chosin Reservoir. Over 1,000
soldiers of Task Force Faith were killed or died in Chinese captivity.
This film is a very accurate, no frills look at the emotions that come
with perceived lost causes during war.
