I recommend the book "SECOND TO NONE - HISTORY - 2ND INFANTRY DIVISION - KOREA 1950-51". They were the first division to arrive directly from the US when the war erupted. When they arrived the North Koreans had overrun the entire Korean peninsula except for a small perimeter around the port city of Pusan.

Welcome! If you can find a copy of Shelby Stanton's book, you'd be amazed by the amount of information and photos in it: https://www.amazon.c...korean uniforms
There are some great Korean War movies too that can help you get a sense of the uniform components (I spend most of my movie watching time looking at the uniforms) The Steel Helmet, Fixed Bayonets, Bridges at Toko Ri, and Pork Chop Hill come to mind.

I am brand new to this forum, and your post is the first I read.
I just finished an outstanding book about the 1st Marine Division in the Inchon landing and at the Chosin Reservoir. "On Desperate Ground - The Marines at the Reservoir, the Korean War's Greatest Battle" by Hampton Sides.
