I have a nice short book from the immediate post war period called “Fighting Divisions.” It contains brief unit histories of every United States combat divsion. I’m sure it’s no longer in print but it’s a nice quick reference.

I would love to find a book like that somewhere. The references I have all talk about combat casualties, so I went to division histories to find total losses and seldom could find the number. They were over 34,000 for the 3rd and 4th divisions with combat losses 25,977 and 22,660 respectively.
