My suggestion would be to visit your local hobby shop and purchase a 1/35th scale set of World War 2 American Infantry.  Tamiya would be best in my opinion. The instructions will give both the colors you need and a detailed drawing of where the color is applied to the uniform.

 Countless books and websites around!

 

Even just putting tank winter camo schemes ww2 will bring up options.

Best book i have ever seen for how to paint vehicles  is the Tank FAQ book by Andrea Miniatures

Try google books I've found a bunch on winter camo stuff. I just searched WWII US Winter Uniforms
