The True Size of the American Land Army in WW2



The True Size of the American Land Army in WW2

Special Thanks for the Script to : Joshua Potts

Records from July of 1941 estimate that the American Army had a strength of 174,000 soldiers. If you include the 1.2 million men forcefully drafted into the military, then we can see that the US had about the 17th largest army in the world.
The American Army was at its largest in March of 1945, and most recruits went on to serve in the Ground Forces.
