Click here for one of the best explanations of Operation Fortitude I have read to date.

The reason for Phantom Divisions was to make the Germans think there were many more divisions ready for combat in Britain.  These patches were worn by soldiers throughout Southern England as a ruse to make the German agents (spies) think there was a larger buildup of American forces than was real. This was dubbed Operation Fortitude and was commanded (less than enthusiastically) by General George Patton. The following Divisions were approved by the War Department to further reinforce the ruse.

6th Airborne Division - 9th Airborne Division - 11th Infantry Division - 14th Infantry Division - 17th Infantry Division - 18th Airborne Division - 21st Airborne Division - 22nd Infantry Division - 46th Infantry Division - 48th Infantry Division - 50th Infantry Division - 55th Infantry Division - 59th Infantry Division - 108th Infantry Division - 119th Infantry Division - 130th  Infantry Division - 135th Airborne Division - 141st Infantry Division - 157th Infantry Division
