Bowling Alley, South Korea

The Battles of the Bowling Alley took place in a narrow valley north of Tabu-dong, Korea, on the Taegu-Sangju road. There, between August 18 and 25, 1950, the U.S. Army’s 27th Infantry Division (‘Wolfhounds’) and the Republic of Korea’s (ROK) 1st Infantry Division faced off against a determined effort by the North Korean People’s Army’s (NKPA) 1st and 13th Infantry divisions to break through this segment of the Pusan Perimeter.
