    In the following quoted passage General Ridgway answered the author's question.  When, after my second effort to avert the anticipated tragic sacrifice of as gallant and loyal a unit as ever existed, was disapproved, I proceeded with the completion of our plans to execute the order.  I do not recall my conversation with Major Riddle, but I remember as vividly as though it were yesterday, that I drew comfort from that walk with him, and that all my anxieties vanished.  It was then less than one hour before my scheduled take­off.

    The incident that follows involved the Mediterranean Command's decision in World War II to drop Ridgway's 82nd Airborne Division near Rome after the conclusion of the Sicily campaign, to speed up the conquest of the Italian peninsula and drive Italy out of the war.  Ridgway had to prepare to carry out the order for the airdrop.  He sent a coded radio message to General Alexander to that effect.  In the following quoted passage General Ridgway answered the author's question.  When, after my second effort to avert the anticipated tragic sacrifice of as gallant and loyal a unit as ever existed, was disapproved, I proceeded with the completion of our plans to execute the order.

    The ROK 9th Division had to be resupplied by airdrop near Hajinbu, inland from Kangnung, on the twenty­ninth.  This constant preoccupation with the CCF IX Army Group now assembled in the Wonsan­Hungnam area shows how little reliable intelligence the Far East Command and Eighth Army had about these forces.  In the west, north of Seoul, signs became more obvious, and CCF prisoner interrogations confirmed that a CCF attack on that section of the front was not far off.  The central­corridor road connecting Hongchon, Hoengsong, and Wonju was almost due north­south if one ironed out the numerous twists and bends in it.
