Is it me, or should this order of battle not include People's Liberation Army, People's Liberation Volunteer Army, People's Liberation Air Force, People's Army of North Korea, etc, and other divisions that took part in the Korean War? This OOB only includes American, NATO and ROK forces (the "Good Guys," as some would put it).

Commonwealth Division[edit]

Is there a reason the Commonwealth Division or its predecessor brigades isn't listed? I suppose it may have operated under one of the US corps, but this should be made clear. As it stands, this order of battle is incomplete. Leithp (talk) 13:48, 5 December 2005 (UTC)

Nor does it include any of the Turkish, Belgian or other nations' forces that took part. I have put an incomplete list tag on it. Leithp (talk) 13:54, 5 December 2005 (UTC)

Yes, it's incomplete.[edit]

The Unites States Army wasn't the only branch of the Armed Services that fought in the Korean War. No list of military action in any combat zone is complete without including the US Marine Corps. I have started a list of Marine units, it will need to be expanded.

I figured that it would be better to add as many ground forces as possible, though my list is not full - particularly with regard to US divisions. I cannot discover what units Philippine forces were attached to. ---Brigade Piron (talk) 12:46, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Columbian forces[edit]
