* British understatement nearly lost a major battle in the Korean War. Whilst being over-run by Chinese forces outnumbering his men nearly fifty to one, a British brigade commander reported to his American general that "things are getting a little bit sticky here". ''He'' meant "We'd quite appreciate reinforcements." The American heard the laconic unworried voice of his subordinate, and reasoned that the British had things well under control. Reinforcements only arrived very late in the battle, allowing the remnants of a British regiment to withdraw undefeated.
