History


II Corps (South Korea) was created July 24, 1950, just before the Battle of Pusan Perimeter.


II Corps consisted of the 1st Division and 6th Infantry Division.

1st Division

 

 

 

 


During the battle of the Pusan Perimeter (July-September, 1950), its headquarters was at Hamch’ang.[1]

 

II R.O.K. Corps
II R.O.K. Corps was raised at Hamch'ang on 14 July 1950 and fought in the central zone of the U.N. front during the advance into North Korea between ill and I R.O.K. Corps. The Corps was inactivated in early January 1951 when three battered R.O.K. divisions were inactivated. II R.O.K. Corps was reconstituted in April 1952 and was immediately
committed to the front in a sector just east of the peninsula's center, between IX and X U.S. Corps. It remained in that sector until after the cease-fire.
