  Yalu River - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Amnok River, or the Yalu River, is a river on the border between China and North Korea.
The river is not easily navigable for most of its length: although at its widest it is around 5 km, the depth is no greater than 3 m and much of the river is heavily silted.
The Korean side of the river was heavily industrialized during the Japanese Colonial Period (1910-1945), and by 1945 almost 20% of Japan's total industrial output originated in Korea.

 CHAPTER XIII: The Chinese Take a Hand
For instance, the Yalu has several very pronounced bends like most rivers before getting to the town of Antung, and the main bridges at Antung we had to attack in only one manner.
So you draw a line from the southernmost bend of the river to the bridge and that is your course, and these people on the other side of the river knew that, and they put up their batteries right along the line and they peppered us right down the line all the way....
These planes were increasing in number; and the distance from the Yalu to the main line of contact was so short that it was almost impossible to deal effectively with the hit-and-run tactics that enemy pilots were employing.

As ground operations moved closer to the Yalu River, Stratemeyer had to relax his restriction on attacks within 50 miles of the border to give the Fifth Air Force more latitude.
Yet now for political reasons, United Nations air power could not cross the Yalu, and as their supply lines grew longer and longer the U. troops would at last be face to face with a powerful enemy untouched by aerial attacks.
In short, the United Nations ground campaign had been successful so long as air power had been able to bomb and strafe in front of the ground troops, but now with the ground troops on the doorstep of Manchuria no support could be given at all.

 MacArthur Says 'Alien' Reds Have Reopened Korean War; Sees 'Gravest' Issue Raised
Without notice of belligerency, General MacArthur charged, the Communists had moved "alien" forces across the Yalu River, the international boundary between North Korea and Manchuria, and massed "a great concentration" in the "privileged sanctuary" of Chinese territory across the border.
Their intention, the United Nations commander said, was to lay a trap for destruction of the United Nations forces that had shattered and were pursuing remnants of the North Korean Army--an outcome that was averted only by the skillful maneuvers of the commander in the field.
Other sources indicated that as many as five divisions might be massing in the west, not only for defense of the Yalu River power plants, which are important to Chinese industry, but for a drive in strength to recapture the former Korean Communist capital at Pyongyang.
