Defense of Pusan Perimeter. After a series of costly delaying actions during July, the U.S. Eighth Army withdrew Aug. 1, into a final defensive line around the key port city of Pusan. After deploying from Japan the previous month, Eighth Army had assumed command of all U.S., ROKA, and other nations' ground combat units fighting to defeat the North Korean invasion. As reinforcements from the U.S. and several other nations arrive at the port, Eighth Army directed the successful defense of the perimeter against major NKPA attacks in August and September.
