The Battle of Kapyong of the Korean War

Remembered as one of Canada’s lesser known but most impressive military successes, the Battle of Kapyong showcased the strength, bravery, and commitment of our Canadian troops in the Korean war.
The 2nd Battalion of Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry were outnumbered but fought tirelessly against all odds to defend the United Nation’s line and prevent the enemy forces from capturing Seoul.
Today, we pay tribute to the Canadians who fought, were wounded, or died to protect a free and democratic South Korea from the tyranny and authoritarianism of communism.
