After the first two months of the conflict, South Korean forces were on the point of defeat, forced back to the Pusan Perimeter. In September , an amphibious UN counter-offensive was launched at Inchon and cut off many of the North Korean troops. Those that escaped envelopment and capture were rapidly forced back north all the way to the border with China at the Yalu River or into the mountainous interior.
