Abstract : This study investigates the United States Army Infantry training during the Korean War (It surveys the United States Army training doctrine (before and during war and current), training memorandums, bulletins, periodicals, observer reports, leader and unit AAR's, unit training reports and related books to determine the training program effectiveness. The literature review suggests that the training programs and systems in place or incorporated were effective after the initial equipment, manning, and organizational shortfalls were fixed during the first part of the war. The major problems noted, after the initial equipment and manning shortfalls were fixed, were in leadership (including selection, training, and retention in combat), and infantry training execution necessary for combat effectiveness units.
