I assume your Question was directed regarding the US Army and Navy. During the war, the US raised INFANTRY divisions that were numbered 1 through 106, but a few of the numbers were not used. So there was NOT a total of 106 infantry divisions(see the link for a list). For example, numbers from 46 to 62 were not used. These Infantry Divisions also included the Airborn Infantry Divisions or the paratroopers and one Mountain Division. Infantry Divisions that fought in Europe, North Africa, and Italy: 1 2 3 4 8 9 10 13 17 26 28 29 30 34 35 36 44 45 63 65 66 69 70 71 75 76 78 79 80 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95 97 99 100 101 102 103 104 106 Some that did not exist were the "Ghost Divisions" that was used as fake units to decieve the Germans into thinking that General Patton was raising an Army for the invasion of Germany. Some of these divisions had existed during World War 1 and were re-activated. Some had never existed before. Link to a list of US INFANTRY DIVISIONS and their patches and it shows which Divisions were in Europe. ARMORED Divisons included about 20. Also there were still a few Cavalry Divisions. One was used as an occupation force in Japan after the surrender. The Air Force was actually a sub-branch of the US Army or known as the US Army Air Corps. The Air Forces were divided up for service in different geographical regions and purposes. Some were medium bombers and some heavy; some were located in Europe and some in Panama Canal. The Air Forces were numbered as follows: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 1112, 13, 14, 15 1st , 2nd ,3rd, 4th,6thAir Forces were in US & Panama Canal. 8th, 9th, 12th, 15th Air Forces were in England, Europe and Italy. 5th, 7th, 10th 11th, 13th 14th Air Forces were in Pacific Theaterand Indo-China.
