On Friday, November 3, 1950 Mao Tse-Tung (1893 1976) ordered the Chinese Army to intervene in the Korean War on behalf of the the retreating North Korean Army:

"...perhaps [as many as] 250,000 Chinese Communists jumped into the battle for Northwest Korea; at best, their intervention meant a winter campaign in the mountains; at worst, a world war."

Historian Eric Goldman recalled that day in the Truman White House:

"General Bradley called me at 6:15 this morning," Truman said.
"He told me that a terrible message had come from General MacArthur. . . The Chinese have come in with both feet."

Goldman continued with this summation from the U.N. front line:

"Night after night the pattern of attack was the same. Under cover of darkness, specially trained and specially armed units of five to nine Chinese crawled forward to determine just how the UN front troops were arranged, to destroy artillery positions, and to cut supply lines. Then flares lit up, bugles or cymbals sounded, whistles went off, and the mass of infantrymen charged, thousands of them, falling unexcited and unafraid only to make room for more thousands. Quickly the Chinese smashed down the center of the UN forces."
