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).
