comment What was the purpose of a division staff in a US Navy Task Force/Fleet in WWII?
@choeger: One objective in creating units was to have groups of ships with similar speeds, capabilities, etc. That's why they tended to be uniform in kind, rather than "mixed." Some ships with "odd" characteristics were used for special tasks and formed "units" on their own.

@Oldcat: I limited the question to Normandy and France. Actually, the Axis numbers are a bit shadowy, so this question is worth exploring.

It would be nice to "migrate" this map to the other question. Too bad it's a duplicate. This questionner actually made a good contribution!
