Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The armored divisions were the shock force of the US Army's combat formations during the fighting in Northwest Europe in the final year of the war. Of the 16 such divisions formed during the war, all but one served in the European Theater of Operations. This book examines the organizational structure, operational doctrine and combat mission of these divisions from D-Day onwards, describing how doctrines and tactics were changed as the divisions were forced to adapt to the battlefield realities of combat against an experienced foe. The lessons drawn by the armored divisions from the bitter fighting in Northwest Europe from 1944 to 1945 strongly shaped postwar US Army doctrine.

Synopsis:

The armored divisions were the shock force of the US Army's combat formations during the fighting in northwest-Europe in the final year of the war. This book examines the combat mission of the armored division in US Army wartime doctrine. The organization of the US armored division is examined, with special attention to the "Combat Command" concept. The order of battle of each of the divisions is provided, along with a brief summary of the unit's combat record. This account is rounded out by relevant statistical data including divisional strength and losses. Based on new archival material, this book provides fascinating information not previously available in published accounts.
