US Infantry Forces In France
By Mike Haught
At their height, the battles for Normandy and Brittany included 14 American infantry divisions. These arrived between D-Day on 6 June 1944 through the end of August, just as the battles for northern France were coming to a close.

Below are all of the US infantry divisions that played an important part in the Normandy fighting. We’ve included a brief history about the division, motivation and skill ratings, and what Formation and Command Cards to use, which represents that division between June and September 1944.
