Exploring Incheon Landing Operation

The Incheon Landing Operation was a military operation that changed the tide of the Korean War (6.25 War) when allies landed in Incheon on September 15, 1950 under the command of Commander MacArthur of the United Nations Forces. It is said to be the most dramatic battle in the history of modern warfare. Here are some important places related to the Incheon landing operation.
