Due to the WWII Army being burdoned by civil affairs matters as areas were liberated, and the mass confusion at the War Dept. in Washington as to which agency should handle various problems, the European Civil Affairs Division was established on 1 Mar 1943. Major General John H. Hilldring was Director of the ECAD. It had three regiments, the 6901st (France), 6902nd and 6903rd (Both Germany). It was considered a unique and curious division, like no other. It did not command but had a prime function to inform and advise the Secretary of War on Civil Affairs matters in the European Theater of Operations (ETO).

In December 1940, the Army moved Second Army’s headquarters to Memphis, Tennessee, and designated it as a training army, which conducted training in 24 states. In June 1944, the Army reconstituted the World War I Second Army, AEF, and consolidated it with the existing Second Army in order to perpetuate the lineage and honors of the World War I unit. During World War II, Second Army trained 11 corps, 55 divisions, and 2,000 smaller units of all arms and services.
