Click to Enlarge40th Infantry Div. 1917-1994, -The Fighting Fortieth in War and Peace.-WWI, WWII, Korea and beyond by Major General Delk USA (Ret), former Commander of the 40th Infantry Division. A superb chronicle of the 40th Infantry Division from deployment to France in WWI, to the Pacific in WWII. After defending Hawaii while training, the 40th had its introduction to combat on the island of New Britain with light action. Next it invaded Luzon, liberating Capas, Tarlac, and Bamban, and fought hard for Clark Field. Securing Central Luzon took longer as the 40th fought uphill battles in the Zambales Mountains. Elements then moved to the islands of Panay, Leyte, Mindanao, Guimares, Inampulugan, and Masbate. Finally came the Los Negros Campaign and a most heroic Medal of Honor action. Then occupation of Korea. Redeployed to Japan and then Korea during the Korean War, the 40th was bloodied in many tank-infantry battles after it relieved the 24th Infantry Division: Heartbreak Ridge, Sandbag Castle, and the Punchbowl. After Korea, the 40th was transported back to the USA were it was used for domestic emergencies & riot control. In WWII the 40th Division suffered 748 KIA and 2,407 WIA. During the Korean War, the 40th Division suffered 376 KIA, 1,447 WIA, 10 MIA, and 15 POW.
