PREFACE

"Order of Battle of the United States Army, World War II, European Theater of Operations--Divisions"was prepared in the Office of the Theater Historian, Headquarters, United States Forces European Theater, to make available an accurate digest of important facts concerning the sixty-one (61) divisions assigned tothe European Theater.* Presented in this volume are command and staff rosters, composition of divisions, attachments and detachments, assignments and attachments to higher units, command post locations and pertinent statistics. With the exception of the lists of attachments and detachments which cover only the period of combat, the material presented for each division dates from its arrival in the European Theater to the end of hostilities on 9 May 1.945. For units arriving from the North Afri can Theater, the record begins on 15 Aug 1944, the date of the invasion of Southern France. Units which arrived in the European Theater after 9 May 1945 are not dealt with in this volume. The principal sources used were the historical records submitted by the units involved, chiefly the "After Action Reports" and supporting documents. The research procedure for each section of the manuscript differed, however and effort was made to use every document available in the files of the Historical Section. These are specifically cited in the explanatory notes below. In addition, as research on a division was completed as far as. existing records permitted, the draft manuscrpt was, wherever possible, submitted to the divi ion for correction and approval. A file for each unit containing all .s, sheets and correrk spondence prepared in the course of the research has been retained and forwarded to the .Tar Department for reference. The project here presented was originally undertaken prior to VE Day at the same time that the research and preparation of a series of narrative monograph histories of the war was begun.

Not included are: 1, Period of service of 1st Armd Div and 31th Div in UK in 1942 while based there preparatory to invasion of North Africa. 2. Period of service of 1st Div in UK in 1942 and in North Africa and editerranean areas in 1942-3. 3. All divisions in North Africa during the period 8 Nov 1942 (Invasion date in North Africa) to 3 Feb 1943 (when North Africa Thcater of Operations was established as an independent command separates from ETOUSA).

The primary intent o.f preparing an Order Af Battle then was to present statistical fmteri- i n convenient outlin. and tabular form for the guidance of those ,xnr.gaged in more eixhustive research, It is fully recognized that a definitive order of battle t awai .t thec completion of research much more thorough than was possible: under the conditions laid dovan for this project. .hat is presented here is in essence a tabulati.on of each unit Ts own official record, cross checked against other units' official records and in most cases specifically approved by the unit!s histoibcal officer. 'No claim is made toi any nigher truth than a reproduction of the essentials of the official record, as accurate as circur statnces perimitted. Although the cardinal consideration in the preparation of this work was accuracy, it is realized that rmany inaccuracies still exist in it. It was shaped up against a deadline in only six months, in contrast to the order of battle of J'orld ari 1 which, with 1-4 fewer divisions and 59 percent fewer combat .ays, ,'as not compl :eted until 12 A large part of the research .ork years after the end of hostilities. and recording of facts was of niecessity performed by untrained French civilian personnel; the rate of turnover among them was hih and it was never possible to supervise thieir work in detail. Because the job was undertaken during the. war and finished in the .theater ,i'thin a

, records,

especially of

units rapidly redeployed or demobilized here,

ere not always avai-

But perhaps the most discouraging source of inaccuracy was
the conflicting evidencet of various a.iy documehts themselves on the samefsts. At one period of ;this study, the historical section was in possession of three sets of figures showing the arrival dates of divisions ontthe continent, Eacha source would normaly be considered a satisfactoryr one. Agreement wvivs sought on 165 facts, but found on only 75, Yet all the sour.es*purportedto beive. the same fact--the arrival date of division neadquarters. It was soon recognize.d that the more figures available the more disagreement was invited, By the same token, however, it was realized that no sin le source could be accepted as va.lid. The only of sources some solution seemed to be to seek by the multiplicaton general agreement, This vas usually found and then a specific choice ,,as ma1de from the source which critical evaluation show:ed iost probably, reliable, Inaccuracy crept in .again in mteri.:l sub.itted by divisions mi.h.t have directly to the Theater Historian witout the check tat been given in the process o.f forwarding through co :mma;nd channels, Direct correspon..enoe w-ith the divisions furthermore vws often difficult and unsatisfactory.

For these and'posbsibly other 'rea'ons information submitted by the divisions was often less reliable .and..complete than could have , beendesired. When drafts were sent for review, .they were sometimes returned withiouit correction,, even though it was known that, inaccurcies existed .Sometimes,careles.sjlr corrected, information .escaped, detection until final editing; it was-then too late to resubmit the ,data because the units were redeployed or inactivated, Inaccuracies devel.ped in the processing ofthe material within the Order of .atte t.Section. As materials were processed they were copied any times, often by typists who were not thoroughly familiar with the problems involved. EVen though careful proofreadings were given, errors continued to be found. It is evident that copyists' errors must also have been written into the records .under field conditions where meticulous checking as 'impossible. . Finally the limitations, on time and personnel made necessary a large dependence on the records of higher headquarters. It' was proved time and agaiti that on matters, of detail. the testimony of higher: headquarters was unreliable- both because of their .remoteness' from the event and b'ecause of the time lag in the recording of information from subordinate units. Nevertheless any other procedure would have precluded the possibility of finishing this project in the .time allotted, With all these provisos, it is probable that 'the errors*hich have. unavoidably slipped by the compilers' most careful scrutiny are not so serious as to vitiate the value of the book. It is hoped that the 'work may still serve its original purpose in providing an Ariadne 's thread through the labyrinth of.facts and chronology of the military operations in the Europeian. Theater.

PAGES STIT
Title pages, consist of nicknames, significances, of shoulder sleeve insignia, and mottes.of each division. The sources from 'which • this information was 'gathered were Thy. N tional Geogr:phic iag zine issue of June, '1943, Vol. LXXIII, iN, b6 letter, Hq, TOUSA AG File 314.7 (Op H), addressed to all divisions, subject, "Unit History Reports", dated 22 February 1945; and, information obtained from letter, Hq ETOUSA, to all divisions, subject "Historical Date on Ground Divisions", dated 4 June 1945. This in'ormwtion, prepared as concisely and uniformly as possible, is not meant to giv'e a'complete picture, of the background, and history of the divisions' insignias., 'When complete information was not available, or where ins'ignia lacks heraldic significance, oaily a brief description of the shoulder patch was given, The' former reason ..applies equally as well to those'divisions' t.itle pages lacking either a nickname, a motto,
or both.'

CO;AiJD A1D STAFF LISTS Command and staff, lists were. originally compiled in the Histor4 ical Section from the following source;: Rosters of Keys Officers, of divisions, corps and higher headquarters (submitted monthly by the Adjutant General of Hq ETOUSA to the War Department); "After Action Reports" with supporting documents*; and units histories. These sources, however, proved incomplete, often lacking exact dates of assumption of comma anand dates of promotion. Tentative lists were therefore sent to each division historian for completion and core rection'. position is the The first date shown for each comanbnd and staff date the division headquarters arrived in the uropean Theater and does not necessarily indicate the date the officer assumed the position, nor show the date that particular officer C.rrived in the theater. does it As an example, laj Gen a.win P. Parker, Jr, assumed command of the 78th volume, the date Infantry Division on 15 August 19i2.. However, in this shown opposite his name is 26 October 1944 which is the date the 78th Infantry Division headquarters arrived in the &uroppan Theater. In the promotion of general officers, there are usually two dates involved, the date of the promotion order, and the effective date of rank, Therever possible, the date of promotion order has been used, However, where information, missing from the. records, wr.as supplied by the division through correspondence it was not always possible to control this factor. The reason for selecting the date of the order rather than the effective date of rank was that it conforms more nearly to the historical fact. For instance, on 6 February 1 9 4 5 , Special Order No. 52 War Department, promoted Brig Gen. W G Weaver, Commanding General of the 8$h Division to the rank of Major Generalm with an effective date of rank dt volume, the promotion is shown on the latter In this of 5 January 1945. date, because prior to 6 , brurry 1945, General tWeaver was actually a to him as Brigadier General. and all historiwcal documents will rifer a Brigadier General,

* "After Action Reports' are prescribed by paragraph 10l Army Regulation 345-105 "Military Records -- Historical Records and Histories of or enAfter every battle dated 18 roy 1929 as ame.ded, Organization, ' gagement with the enemy, reports were made by commanders of regiments separate battalions or squadrons, companies or detachments and by all It was prescribed that such reports have commnders of a higher grade. journals, together with supporting annexed thereto the unit and staff documents, Hq ETOUSA directed that these reports be submitted moAthly. Upon receipt in Hq TOU$A, these reports were forwarded to the Historical Section for custody and use.

vii

Another reason for selectipg .the date of order, or later date, is that in some cases, a general offic'er was reassigned and promoted, with an effective date of rank which goes back to the period of his former command, and a date of order which applies to the command to which reassigned. Lt' Gen L T Gerow was relieved from command of the V Corps and assigned to the command of the. Fifteenth Army on 16 January 1945. On that date he was a'major general. Several weeks later he was promoted~to'the rank of Jieutehant general, but the effective date of this rank was retroactive to the period when he was in command of V Corps. However in no period of his actmal command of V Corps was General (.erow a,lieutenant general.

ARRIVAL DAT:S IN THE

TO ON CONTINENT

Arrival dates in the European Theater and arrival dates on the continent were originally obtained from the files of Central Machine Records Unit, Hq ETOUSA; "After Action Reports"; Unit Histories; and files of AG Operations Division, Hq, ETOUSA. The dates derived from these sources, however, were often in conflict, All dates j-re recorded on work sheets and sources of the information shown, These were checked against a list of arrival dates prepared, by Hq,. 12th Army Group. But the resultant discrepancies were so large that a special request was submitted to all divisions to furnish exact dates. In most cases the new dates supplied agreed with those in the ,After Action Reports" and unit histories. As no further check could be made short of research beyond the scope of this work, these new figures were used. In the case of units which were demobilized or inactivated before they could be contacted, the "After Action Report" or unit history dates were selected. The arrival of a division usually extended over several days and sometimes several months.' Inclusive arrival dates, however, would have involved additional complications. It was 'decided therefore to record only the date of arrival of the division headquarters. Yhen headquarters itself arrived over . period of two or more days, the one date selected is that on which the main echelon closed. No attempt has been made to record the arrival of advanced detachments, which usually came to the European Theater four to six weeks before the main body, Since the date shown is the arrival date of the main body of the division headquarters, there are cases where a division actually entered combat prior to its stated arrival on the continent. For example, the three infantry regiments of the 42d Infantry Division were committed on 24 December 1944, although the division headquarters did not arrive until 18 January 1945.

Material on awards and aecorations was furnished by the Awards Adjutant General, Hq USFE . A monthly report was prepared by Branch,

The cumulative total of vwards shown in these monthly reports furnished the figures presented in this volume.

,ad

The figures of the' total" awards made by divisions are sometimes unavoidably misleading. For units 'which were still'in the theater on 30 September 1945, this report shows awards given'only up to that date., For units which departed from the theater prior to 30' September,, no awards are shown after the date 'of departure even though it is known that awards based upc.., combat operations in this theater were subsequently given upon arrival of unit in the Zone of Interior. For exenam ple, the 97th Inf Div departed from the theater in May 1945. It is known that awards were given in the US 6bsed upon,European combat operations. Since, however, no report was made to the European Theater,. this information is not in the. monthly theater reports to the War Department and is not included in this volume. Many awards, especially Bronze Stars, were reported to higher headquarters and incorporated in 'the VWar Department monthly report .but were later rescinded by lower unit orders. These resoi:ssions were cae.tsed mostly by the transfer of personnel or the discovery that the award had previously been granted. Because of the complexity of recording each rescission at higher heedquarters, the AG.made no attempt to alter the origir'al monthly figures. A small margin of error should therefore be figured in the totals shown for Bronze Stars. Figures on Purple Heart awards were not used; since a large percentage of awards were made in hospitals, records of which were not cleared through divisions, complete data was not available, Records of awards of Congressional Medals.of Honor and.Distinguished Service Medals were obt.ined from The Adjutant General's Office itMchine Records Branch, from a special report prepared on 28 November 1945. Because of their latf receipt, they are not shown in the division sion sections, and are listed only in Table J of Part II.

SATTACHME TS AND DETACiui

TS

The information conta.ined in this section was obtained partly through research by the Historical Section, and partly from lists submitted by divisions. The following sources were used by Historical Section researchers; "After Action Reports"; G-3 periodic reports of division and corps; regimental S-3 periodic reports; field orders, mes sages, sitreps; letters of instructions and corps troop assignment lists,
li

Research was a long and difficult process, and in many cases, available records did not furnish information upon which to base a complete listing. Beoeuse of insufficient records, and lack of personnel to complete the , se.:3rch on all 61 divisions in the time allotted, a
'.

request was made to divisions to submit this information. Some divisions replied that they could not furnish lists of attachments and detachraents from available records. Sometimes lists furnished by divisions were so inadequate that an entirely new list had to be, accomplished by Historical Section res.earch. The principal means of verifying atta chmfents and detachments was the find agreement in record between the unit attrached or detached and the unit to which it was ,attnched. The volume of work, however, involved in the chec ing of each attachment in that manner would have he time allotprecluded the completion of this tentative study winth and .attachment of regiment s , comFor this reason, only detachment ted. bat commands, cr vnlry groups and organic divisional units were so checked.

COMMAND POST LISTS

were prepared from the following sources: The initial CP lists 12th Army Group's 0G3 (daily)Reports"; "After Action Reports"; Unit Histories (of which only six were available); SHAEF' G-3War Room Daily Sumziarie'§;and 'Rost'er of Key Offioers", publshed monthly by Hq ETOUSA. One of th eprima y difficulties 'involved in preparing the list of command posts was the inconsistency of the records in the method of SHAEF G-3 Summaries listed them only by map grid coorlocating them, dinates Mlost other sources indicated CP locations by towns. Twelfth Army Group G-3 Reports listed grid coordinates for division Cs, and indicated higher headquarters CPs on the map accompanying the report. Units themselves generally referred to their CP locations by relation to In this voltrme, the latter method for indicating all the nearest town. division CPs was ado ted. The errors involved in handling and translati n g coordinates were prepared by the Historical The tentative lists large, as was expected, In most cases divisions subSection were sent to divisions for check, mitted entirely new lists different both in place names and dates, in In view of this, only divie addition to revealing important omissions, sion approved lists were incorporated in this volume. submitted by the divisions, however Even the corrected CP lists were inaccurate, especially with regard to correct spelling of towns, and -additional checking was necessary before they could be published. It was obvious that many had been carelessly prepared. Cities shown were often spelled by American phonetics without regard to the French original, Few divisions named the departments or province of the cities listed. The task of identifying cities by departments and provinces was completed in the Historical Section. Those cities which were obviously misspelled were corrected by a careful study of the division's route of advance. Some of this had to be informed guesswork, and some errors may therefore remain. The problem of determining the correct geographical subdivision, made necessary by the multiplication of the same place name in a single country, was further complicated by the fact that many French cities have compound names but are generally referred to in their own locality by the first name only. When divisions neglected to give the complete name of the city, t-,ere was sometimes a possibility of Locating it in the wrong department, The most difficult case was St. Aubin. France, There are sixteen (16) cities named St, Aubin, plus sixty-one (61) with names including St. Aubin, like St, Aiubin Celleville, St Aubin de Cretor, and St. Aubin sur Yonne. The towns on the French border in the departments of Moselle, Bas-Rhin, and Haut-Rhin were sometimes given in German form and some-

times in the cities

This presented another problem in Fr nch. with the proper department.

"Onaway Division"

The division insignia is an escutcheon which has a red field and a blue chief, separated by an olive drab line; a threepronged white device is superimo posed on the blue chief. The white device was a medieval hglish her.adic symbol meaning "first son". In World War I the 76th was the first division of the National Army to be drawn from civilian ranks through the draft, hence the insignia and the description, "the first sons of the nation",The co mbined colors of the field, the device, and the chief are the national colors. "0Onaway' is the alert cry of the Chippewa Indians, in whose hunting grounds the 76th Division trained.
