    Here are a few books that may help....

    Marine Air by Robert Dorr
    Chopper by Robert Dorr
    US Marine Corps Aviation by Peter B. Mersky
    A history of Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 161 by Gary W Parker

    They will be a little light on photo's, I am not aware of a good photo book for helo's in the Korean War.

      Another one is "Cavalry of the Sky" by Lynn Montross. It was written in 1954 and has a lot of information about VMO-6 and HMR-161, the two combat helicopter squadrons that served in Korea. There is also some good stuff about the early days of Marine Corps helicopter ops with HMX-1. My copy has photos and maps of Korean operations.

      You might be able to find a copy in some libraries or used book stores.
