Overview

On 10 June 1950 the P'yŏngyang government announced a new plan for unification and peace after branding the top ROK officials as “traitors.” The motive behind this proposal was apparently the usual Communist attempt to divide an enemy on the eve of an aggression.

For the long-planned blow fell at 0400 (Korean time) on Sunday morning, 25 June 1950.

Russian-made tanks spearheaded the advance of the N.K. ground forces across the 38th Parallel, and Russian-made planes strafed Sŏul and other strategic centers.

Captured N.K. documents offer proof that the invaders had already set the machinery of aggression in motion while making their plea for peace. This evidence included the written report of instructions given by one Lieutenant Han to a group of picked men on an intelligence mission. On 1 June 1950 they were to proceed by power boat to an island off Inch'ŏn, where confederates would help them make their way to the mainland.

“Our mission,” explained Han, “is to gather intelligence information concerning South Korean forces and routes of advance ahead of our troops. We will perform this task by contacting our comrades who are scattered throughout the length and breadth of South Korea.”[19]

The lieutenant explained that the forthcoming attack on South Korea was to be the first step toward the “liberation” of the people of Asia. And his concluding remarks leave no doubt as to the complete confidence with which the Korean Communists began the venture:

“Within 2 months from the date of attack, Pusan should have fallen and South Korea will be again united with the North. The timetable for this operation of 2 months’ duration was determined by the possibility of United States forces intervening in the conflict. If this were not so, it would take our forces only 10 days to overrun South Korea.”[20]

[note]

The N.K. Army had activated its I Corps at P'yŏngyang about 10 June 1950, in early August 1950, the N.K. I Corps included the 3rd, 4th, and 6th (later also the 2nd, 7th, 9th, and 10th) Tanks and personnel of the 105th Armored Division were divided between the two corps and supported both of them.
