2nd Infantry Division in Korea 1953. An Official U.S. Army History Including Attached Units. This volume covers the Division's last year of the war in great detail.
The 2nd Infantry Division arrived in Korea in July & August 1950 and was immediately committed to defending the Naktong Perimeter, and moved to North Korea after the U.S. Inchon invasion. When the Chinese invaded in Nov. '50, the 2d Division was overwhelmed and virtually destroyed as it tried to withdraw south. After a brief respite to rebuild itself, the 2nd Division was again committed to heavy fighting just two months later. This volume covers the Division's last year of the war in great detail.
