based on this paragraphh.... MacArthur began to drive up into North Korea. Allied forces had almost conquered the entire country when China sent hundreds of thousands of "volunteers" to the aid of the North Koreans. It was the Allies who were then driven back. They lost and then later retook Seoul in the fighting that followed. The conflict eventually reached a stalemate very near the 38th parallel which had been the original border. MacArthur wanted to attack China, and he became very public about his opinion. President Truman, however, was worried about starting World War III and insisted on keeping the war in Korea. This approach is known as a "limited war." When MacArthur continued to publicly work against the policies of his commander-in-chief, Truman fired him. MacArthur had tremendous support at home. Truman's decision made him very unpopular. Many people still believe that MacArthur was correct in his opinions, but it was not his decision to make. A cease-fire was proposed in June of 1951. Truce talks began in July. Both sides quickly agreed on a new dividing line between North and South Korea. However, the talks stalled over the issue of repatriation of prisoners of war. Many of the Chinese and North Korean prisoners did not want to be forced to return to their Communist homelands. The Communists insisted that all prisoners had to be repatriated even if it was against their will. The Allies refused. The talks stalled until March of 1953. The impasse was broken when Joseph Stalin died and the new Soviet leaders decided to support the truce. An armistice was signed in July of 1953 ending the fighting, but not officially ending the war. A two-and-a-half-mile-wide Demilitarized Zone was set up along the border of the two nations. Prisoners who did not wish to return home could be visited by delegates from their nation, but would not be forced to return. Over 14,000 Chinese and over 7,000 North Koreans did not go home. A much smaller number of South Koreans and even a few Americans also refused. The war ended much as it had begun with the Communists holding most of Korea north of the 38th parallel. They had not gained any new ground. In accordance with the U.S. policy of containment, the spread of Communism had been stopped. -------- What was MacArthur's strategy to break out of the Pusan Perimeter and how did it work?

    He pretty much sent army forces behind North Korea 300 miles in their land and cut them off from supplies.
