Operation Ripper: Korea, 1951
Public Hosted by A Ndrew House

May 3 at 4 PM May 5 at 9 AM EDT

195 Kimbels Rd, Hawley, PA 18428-8001, United States

After the humiliating debacle of the previous winter, UN Forces are back on the attack in Korea. With the eyes of the press diverted, GIs and Marines of IX Corps grind over the endless mountains towards Chuncheon unremarked by the world. Burned out and ragged from the winter fighting, Communist troops trade space for time, slowly drawing their foes into a deadly trap.

This Korean War tactical pits attacking UN troops against defending North Koreans in 10 acres of private land in the rugged and beautiful Poconos region of Pennsylvania, reminiscent of the wilder parts of the Korean Peninsula.

DATES: May 3-5, 2019.

-Registration fee TBD based on event costs.
-There will be TWO working parties in March and April to prepare the site for fighting. This includes clearing deadwood, building fortifications, etc. REGISTRATION FEE WILL BE WAIVED FOR ANYONE WHO PARTICIPATES IN A WORKING PARTY. Dates TBA.
