On July 15, 1940, the 1st Armored Division, largely an expanded and reorganized version of the 7th Cavalry Brigade, was activated at Fort Knox under the command of Major General Bruce Magruder. The 1st Cavalry Regiment was redesignated as 1st Armored Regiment and 13th Cavalry Regiment was redesignated as 13th Armored Regiment under the 1st Armored Brigade, 1st Armored Division.[7] For more than two years after its activation, the 1st Armored Division trained at Fort Knox and the division pioneered and developed tank gunnery and strategic armored offensives while increasing from 66 medium-sized tanks to over 600 medium and light armored vehicles

1st Armored - Old Ironsides

The 1st Armored Division ("Old Ironsides") was originally organized at Fort Knox, Kentucky, on March 1, 1932, as the 7th Cavalry Brigade which on July 15, 1940, was redesignated the 1st Armored Division. The Division continued to train at Fort Knox, and took part in the Louisiana maneuvers (May 1940 and September 1941) and on the Carolina maneuvers (October to December 1941). In April 1942 the Division was transferred to Fort Dix, New Jersey, where it received additional training before leaving the New York port of embarkation, May 11, 1942, for overseas duty.

Elements of the 1st Armored Division first went into action in the North African invasion, landing at Oran on November 8, 1942, and taking the city. The Division fought numerous actions in North Africa, at Maknassy, El Guettar, Gafsa, and Kasserine Pass, and engaged in the final campaign to reduce enemy resistance in Tunisia, occupying Mateur on May 3, 1943. The Division was then reorganized in French Morocco. Elements took part of the initial landings at Salerno and Paestum, Italy, on September 9, 1943, while other elements took part in the fighting near the Rapido River in mid-December 1943. Units under Task Force Allen attacked and seized Mount Porchia, January 4-9, 1944, suffering heavy casualties. The Division was then switched to the Anzio beachhead, first elements landing January 24, 1944, where they repulsed heavy counterattacks and maintained defensive positions for four months, building up for the final breakthrough, May 23, 1944. The Division drove through and north of Rome, moving 200 miles in five days. It continued to fight its way northward through successive defensive and offensive actions, crossed the Arno on September 1, 1944, and engaged in the slow, bitter advance through the Appennines. The Division broke through the Po Valley in April 1945, and took Milan on April 30, and was driving north to Cigliano when German forces in Italy capitulated, May 2, 1945. The Division thereupon engaged in occupational duties and became part of the Army of Occupation until April 16, 1946, when it sailed for home. The Division was inactivated at Camp Kilmer, New Jersey, on April 26, 1946.

Wartime commanders included Major General Bruce Magruder, July 1940 - March 1942; Major General Orlando Ward, March 1942 - April 1943; Major General Ernest N. Harmon, April 1943 - July 1944; Major General Vernon E. Prichard, July 1944 - September 1945; Major General Roderick R. Allen, September 1945 - January 1946; and Brigadier General Hobart R. Gay, February 1946 - April 1946.
