Despite these counterattacks, the war was moving north, well above Seoul. Indeed, South Korean troops were about to cross the 38th Parallel. On 29 September, General MacArthur and South Korean President Syngman Rhee and their wives returned to Seoul for a triumphant ceremony, accompanied by a large official retinue. The concentration of so many VIPs within the smoldering city so soon after the heavy fighting made General O. P. Smith nervous. Isolated NKPA antiaircraft gunners still exacted a price against allied planes flying over the city’s northern suburbs, especially the slow flying observation aircraft of VMO6, which lost a single-engine OY and an HO3S-1 helicopter on the day of the ceremony.

To their astonishment, the Marines learned that their corps commander considered the military defenses of Seoul to be broken. “The enemy is fleeing the city to the northeast,” the communique concluded. ” In truth the Marines and soldiers would still be fighting for full possession of the capital 48 hours past General Almond’s announced liberation date, but the issue was insignificant. The troops viewed the battle from purely a tactical perspective; their corps commander sensed the political ramifications.

In view of the allies’ disheartening performance in the Korean War to date, MacArthur, and Almond, had earned the right to boast. Further, although the Marines might not like to admit it, General Almond was essentially correct in his flash message the night of the 25th—the main body of the North Korean defenders, the remnants of a division, was indeed retreating north. What surprised all components of X Corps was the NKPA decision to expend the equivalent of an armored brigade in suicidal night attacks and die-hard defense of the main barricades to keep the Americans ensnared in the city.
