Re: ROK Army
There were numerous small engagements between South Korean forces and
infiltrating guerrillas or regular NK units along, or just south of the
38th Parallel during 1949 - early 1950. Without exception, every time one
of these "incidents" happened, North Korea would claim "valiant North
Korean forces" repulsed an attack by invading South Korean troops north of
the 38th when in fact the fire-fight happened south of the 38th. These
claims by North Korea are part of their version of the history of the
Korean War and used, in part, to justify their attack on South Korea.
