While G Company held its positions on Hill 179 on 2 September against enemy attack, Colonel Murch's 2nd Battalion, 27th Infantry, started an attack northwest toward it at 1700 from the Chung-ni area. The battalion made slow progress against formidable enemy forces. The night was extremely dark and the terrain along the Kuhe-ri ferry road was mountainous.
