Added DiffLines:

* EasyLogistics: After getting ordered to withdraw from South Korea, the US troops deliberately screw up their logistics so they can stay a little longer in anticipation of the invasion. This turns out to be a double-edged sword, because while they're still there to fight the war, they're badly supplied, and it takes them a while to undo the mess they made of their supply situation and get the front-line troops the things they need to fight effectively.
