The Battle of Cho- sin Reservoir (Nov. 27 to Dec. 13, 1950) was one of the bloodiest battles during the Korean War. It was also one of the coldest battles in history and often referred to as “Frozen Chosin.” It was during the coldest winter in 100 years in North Korea that 8,000 fi ghters, mostly Marines, were surrounded by 120,000 Chinese soldiers at the Chosin Reservoir. In 17 days of brutal, subzero temperatures, the men battled wave after wave of Chinese soldiers as they fought 78 miles down a steep and narrow mountain road they called the MSR, or main supply route.
