During WWII, Fort McClellan trained nearly 500,000 servicemen.  In October of 1940, the 27th Infantry Division went to Fort McClellan and later deployed in December of 1942 throughout the Pacific Theater. At the peak of the war, there were 2170 officers and 42, 126 enlisted personnel at Fort McClellan, including two detachments of WAC.  The base started with the Branch Immaterial Training Center with eights weeks of training and then the soldiers were sent on for combat training or specialized schools.  In 1943, this became IRTC, Infantry Replacement Training Center, with nine weeks of training simulating combat in Europe including combat in urban areas, actions under live artillery fire and crouching in foxholes with tanks moving overhead.  In addition, the 92nd Infantry Division (comprised of African-American soldiers from all states) trained during 1942 – 1943 and were then sent on to fight in Italian campaigns.  Fort McClellan also was a Prison Interment Camp for POWs.
