Yesterday, Lt Col P at Op-For noted the anniversary of the Inchon landing in 1950 and posted a picture that I could have sworn I’ve posted here before. Since I can’t find the photo, I’ll post it now:
Inchon Invasion, September 1950 First Lieutenant Baldomero Lopez, USMC, leads the 3rd Platoon, Company A, 1st Battalion, 5th Marines over the seawall on the northern side of Red Beach, as the second assault wave lands, 15 September 1950. Wooden scaling ladders are in use to facilitate disembarkation from the LCVP that brought these men to the shore. Lt. Lopez was killed in action within a few minutes, while assaulting a North Korean bunker.
And, regarding amphibious landings in modern warfare, see They won’t fall for that again?
