Before the Pearl Harbor attack there were some 120,000 American soldiers. At the end of the war the USA had about 16 million under arms (most of them reservists); about 4 million Americans were in military action in Europe (against Germany and Italy) and half a million men were in action in the Pacific (against the Japanese).
