Without control of the air, the Communist Chinese were unable to establish their series of air bases and they were not able to carry out effective air support of their spring offensive, and the Korean War settled down to a stalemate on the ground. For Bomber Command, the contrast between what a strategic bomber like the B had been designed for and what it actually did clearly illustrates the anomalies.
