Tahun 1944, ada sekitar 69 divisi Jerman di Perancis dan 19 di Italia (jumlahnya tidak pasti karena adanya pemindahan dan peletakan baru) Keegan, John. The Second World War. Source-Axis History Factbook.  Menurut David Glantz PDF[pranala nonaktif], pada bulan Januari 1945 pasukan Poros telah mengerahkan 2,3 juta melawan Tentara Merah. Namun, akibat kurang persiapan pada musim dingin, mereka mengalami kekalahan dengan 510.000 tentara terbunuh di Timur dan 325.000 di Barat. Bulan April 1945, 1,96 juta tentara Jerman menghadapi 6,4 juta pasukan Tentara Merah di perbatasan Berlin, Cekoslowakia, dan beberapa daerah di kawasan timur lainnya. Di sisi lain, 4 juta tentara Sekutu di barat menghadapi tentara Jerman yang kurang dari 1 juta orang. Bulan Mei 1945, Soviet menerima 1,5 juta tentara yang menyerah, sedangkan di sisi lain 1 juta tentara Jerman lain menyerah pada Inggris dan Amerika.
