      The Chosin Reservoir campaign was directed mainly against the 1st Marine Division of the U.S., which had disembarked in eastern North Korea and moved inland in severe winter weather to a mountainous area near the reservoir. In a surprise attack, more than 100,000 Chinese troops trapped American forces in some of the harshest, most remote territory of the Korean nation-in temperatures that regularly fell to 25 degrees below zero.
