  U.S. Third Army - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Third Army was disbanded in July 1919, as the need for a headquarters of that level to control the American occupation forces in Germany was not evident.
Lieutenant General George Patton was one of the US Army's greatest exponents of armoured warfare.
Third Army remained responsible for this aspect of US Armed Forces operations until 1974, when a new major headquarters, that of Forces Command, or FORSCOM was activated to replace Third Army.

The first and only active combat the Russian Liberation Army undertook against the Red Army was by the lake Oder on the 11th of April, 1945, done largely at the insistence of Himmler as a test of the army's reliability.
