How 1,000 Filipino Troops Fought 40,000 Chinese Soldiers


In honor of those who sacrificed their lives
for freedom, Masid proudly presents “The Battle of Yultong”, a story of how Filipinos
troops braved a sea of Chinese soldiers during the Korean War. The Korean War began on June 25, 1950, when
North Korea, backed by China and the Soviet Union, crossed the border into South Korea
in an attempt to capture its capital, Seoul. In response, the United Nations Security Council
through the formation of the United Nations Command ordered the deployment of military
forces to stop the invasion. On August 7, 1950, President Elpidio R. Quirino
with approval from Congress, sent 7,420 Filipino combat troops to fight in South Korea. President Quirino saw this as a commitment
to help a friend and as part of a larger battle to save the world from communism. The 10th Batallion Combat Team of the Philippine
Expeditionary Forces to Korea was the first battalion to arrive on Pusan shores on September
19, 1950. The 10th Batallion made up of 1,303 enlisted
men and 64 officers was originally a motorized battalion sent to operate tanks from the U.S.,
but when none arrived was turned into a heavy weaponry unit instead. On the night of April 22 the 10th Battalion,
as part of the US 65th Infantry Regiment of the US 3rd Infantry Division, was attacked
north of Yeoncheon by a large force of Chinese and North Korean soldiers. This would be known in history as “The Great
Spring Offensive”, one of the largest offensives by the 44th Division of the Chinese People’s
Volunteer Army and the communist North Korean Army during the Korean War. In front of the Filipinos were four Chinese
divisions numbering about 40,000 men. Just after midnight the Chinese began their
attack with a heavy artillery barrage. Soon after the Chinese forces advanced but
had difficulty as the 10th Battalion successfully defended their position with mortar and artillery. However, a massive Chinese assault pushed
the Turkish Brigade from their position allowing the Chinese to surround the Filipino’s eastern
side. Seeing the incoming danger, Lt. Col. Dionisio
Ojeda immediately organized a unit of battalion cooks and clerks to fortify and defend the
east flank. With the help of M24 light tanks and artillery
support, Lt. Col Ojeda’s makeshift unit was able to hold off the advancing Chinese
forces. The situation only got worse when the Puerto
Rican 65th Infantry Regiment situated on the west flank began to fall back from Chinese
attack. With the west flank now exposed, the Chinese
began advancing but were blocked by a platoon of Filipino soldiers situated on a hill overlooking
Yultong. Commanded by Lieutenant Jose Artiaga, this
platoon refused to yield and held their ground. This gave Lt. Artiaga’s company commander
Captain Conrado Yap enough time to mount a counterattack. The counterattack successfully extracted the
trapped platoon from the hill and also stopped the Chinese from further advancing. But sadly, Lieutenant Artiaga and Captain
Yap were killed during the fight. In the early morning of April 23, Lt. Col
Ojeda led a second counterattack using M24 tanks. This caught the Chinese off guard and pushed
them away from the hill they were trying to seize. The Filipinos fought until midday before it
was ordered to withdraw and link up with the rest of the division in the south. 15 Filipino soldiers died, 26 were wounded
and 14 were missing in action while the Chinese and North Koreans lost around 500 soldiers. The 10th Battalion’s effort at Yultong allowed
the US 3rd Infantry Division to successfully withdraw from the battlefield which would
later on prove to turn the war in favor of the allies. Two weeks later the communists began ceasefire
negotiations after suffering more heavy losses. For the next two years the Korean War was
mostly battled from hill tops until a ceasefire was finally declared. Out of the 7,420 Filipino soldiers sent, 113
were killed, 313 wounded, 15 missing and 41 held as prisoners of war. Today, a monument stands inside the War Memorial
of Korea in honor of the many Filipino soldiers who fought for its liberation. Recently during the 69th anniversary of the
Korean War the late Captain Conrado Yap was awarded the “Taegeuk Medal”, the highest
military decoration given to a soldier for bravery in combat. Also awarded the “Taeguk Medal was fellow
10th Battalion Team member Major Maximo Young for his heroism in “The Battle Of Miudong”. The efforts of the 10th Battalion in the Battle
of Yultong was instrumental in turning the tide of the war in favor of the allied forces. South Korea remains a free democracy thanks
to the contribution of soldiers like the “Fighting Filipinos” a name given by the US Command
to the brave men of the 10th Battalion Combat Team. Did you like our story? Are there other heroic adventures of Filipinos

    This is why the Philippines needs MBTs that are easy enough to transport anywhere in the Philippine Islands and easy to resupply.

    The Mortar and Artillery were Great!
    The current Military Budget Division is at critical it Should have been divided properly to the 3 Forces including the DND…

    I am slowly losing faith in our current Administration's capabilities of Handling the Philippine Government properly. I hope our country will be well soon.

    600 British soldiers took on a force of 30,000 Chinese troops crossing the Imjin River in Korea. This was very common doing the war when the Chinese intervened. the Chinese just have numbers but lack training and equipment.
