Oh geez dude, give it a rest. The Aussies were the first battalion the Chinese hit and the Aussies kicked their fucking asses. But as the Chinese kept pouring in, there was a real concern that the Aussie position would be overrun. Like the Canadians, the Aussies had one understrength battalion in the fight against an entire Chinese division. It's estimated that the Aussies killed 500 Chinese before their battle was over.<quoted text>
Who "planned" the Arsie withdrawal? Why weren't the Canadians withdrawn and the Arsies left to fight?
It seems from Gallipoli right to Vietnam the arsies have had a history of withdrawing!
Keep in mind that both the Aussies and Canadians in the forward positions were only in company strenght. The Aussie withdrawl wasn't to take them out of the fight but to link up with the rest of their battalion in better defensive positions.
The battle wasn't about sending the Chinese back where they came from, it was about giving the rest of the UN forces time to reform and rejoin the fight after they had been routed.
Maybe you should read up about it instead of forming your opinions based on your personal dislike of Australians.
