Second Australian Imperial Force
The 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th Divisions were the only Second Australian Imperial Force (2nd AIF) divisions to be fully formed and see active service in their entirety. Elements of the 1st Armoured Division also saw action. The 10th Division was a short-lived — and never fully formed — 2nd AIF formation; none of its subsidiary units saw active service.

Militia
The other units listed above were Militia units (Australian Military Forces - conscripted personnel who, by Commonwealth Of Australia Defence legislation, could only be deployed into active service within Australia and Australian Territories). The 3rd and 5th Divisions saw active service in their entirety, as did elements of some other Militia divisions, although most of these divisions were never fully formed.

Light divisions
The designation "Light" (leichte) had various meanings in the German Army of World War II. There was a series of 5 Light divisions; the first four were pre-war mechanized formations organized for use as mechanized cavalry, and the fifth was an ad hoc collection of mechanized elements rushed to Africa to bail the Italians out and organized into a division once there. All five were eventually converted to ordinary Panzer divisions.

Various other divisions were dubbed "Light" for other reasons, and are listed among the Infantry Series Divisions.

Infantry series divisions

Types of division in the series
German infantry divisions had a variety of designations and specializations, though numbered in a single series. The major variations are as follows: Fortress (Festung) – Divisions of non-standard organization used to garrison critical sites. The smaller ones might consist of only two or three battalions. Grenadier – A morale-building honorific usually indicative of reduced strength when used alone. Light, Jäger – Provided with partial horse or motor transport and usually lighter artillery, and reduced in size compared to an ordinary infantry division. Some of these were essentially identical to mountain divisions, and were sometimes referred to as Gebirgsjäger ("Mountain Light Infantry") divisions.

This description does not apply to the Light divisions in Africa (5th, 90th, 164th, 999th), nor to the five Light mechanized divisions listed in their own subsection.

Motorized – Provided with full motor transport for all infantry and weapons systems. Usually reduced in size compared to an ordinary infantry division. Division Nummer – A sort of placeholder division, with a number (Nummer) and staff but few if any combat assets. These divisions started out without any type in their name (e.g., Division Nr. 179), though some acquired a type later on (e.g, Panzer Division Nr. 179). Panzergrenadier – As motorized, but with more self-propelled weapons and an added battalion of tanks or fully armored assault guns. Static (bodenständige) – Deficient in transport, even enough to move its own artillery. Many of these were divisions that had been mauled on the Russian Front and were sent west to serve as coastal defense garrisons until sufficient resources were available to rehabilitate them.

Volksgrenadier – A late-war reorganization with reduced size and increased short-range firepower. Many previously destroyed or badly mauled infantry divisions were reconstituted as Volksgrenadier divisions, and new ones were raised as well. Its fighting capability was equivalent to a US-style National Guard formation. zbV – An ad hoc division created to meet a special requirement. (E.g., Division zbV Afrika) Most of the size reductions listed above were by about a third, either by the removal of an infantry regiment or the removal of one infantry battalion from each of the three regiments. Infantry divisions were raised in waves, sets of divisions with a standardized table of organization and equipment. In general the later waves (i.e., the higher-numbered divisions) were of lower quality than the earlier ones.

Hermann Göring divisions
The Hermann Göring formations grew from a single police detachment to an entire armored corps over the course of the war. The later epithet Fallschirm ("parachute") was purely honorific.

Airborne divisions
In order to keep its existence secret, the first German airborne division was named as if a Flieger ("flier") division in the series of Luftwaffe divisions that controlled air assets rather than ground troops:

7th Flieger Division (often translated 7th Air Division)

The division was later reorganized to start a series of nominally airborne divisions. Though named Fallschirmjäger ("paratrooper") divisions, most were not actually trained for airdrops, and in practice most operated as ordinary infantry throughout their existence. The lower-numbered ones earned and maintaned an élite status, but quality generally declined among the higher-numbered ones.

Field divisions
Luftwaffe Field Divisions were ordinary infantry divisions organized from Luftwaffe personnel made available after mid-war due to the manpower crunch. They were originally Luftwaffe units but were later handed over to the Heer, retaining their numbering but with Luftwaffe attached to distinguish them from similarly numbered divisions already existing in the Heer.

List of United States Army divisions during World War II
Overview
The United States began the war with only a handful of active divisions: five infantry and one cavalry. By the end of the war, the nation had fielded nearly one hundred. Additionally, due to the US Army's method of employment combined with events of the war, the United States did not suffer the destruction of any of its division-size units during the conflict.
