PostSubject: Eighth Army    Tue Jul 05, 2011 2:14 am

Though the force was badly defeated militarily, Task Force Smith accomplished its mission of delaying North Korean forces from advancing for several hours.[38][42][45] During the battle, the 24th Infantry Division's 34th Infantry Regiment was able to set up in Pyeongtaek, 15 miles (24 km) to the south. It would be similarly defeated in the Battle of Pyongtaek.[46] Over the next month, the 24th Infantry Division would fight in numerous engagements to delay North Korean forces with similar results. Within a week, the 24th Infantry Division had been pushed back to Taejon where it was again defeated in the Battle of Taejon.[7] The North Koreans, overwhelming U.S. forces time and again, were able to push the Eighth Army all the way back to Pusan, where the Battle of the Pusan Perimeter would culminate in the eventual defeat of the North Korean Army.[47]
