Best Answer

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).
