The North Korean force assembled at the front on 1 September for the assault against the Pusan Perimeter numbered about 98,000 men. Perhaps a third were raw recruits, most of them forcibly conscripted in South Korea and hastened to the front with little or no training and with few weapons. It is believed that the major organizations had personnel strength approximately as follows: [21-52]

1st Infantry Division 5,000
2nd Infantry Division 6,000
3d Infantry Division 7,000
4th Infantry Division 5,500
5th Infantry Division 7,000
6th Infantry Division 10,000
7th Infantry Division 9,000
8th Infantry Division 6,500
9th Infantry Division 9,350
10th Infantry Division 7,500
