    I'm looking for the composition of those French units which did not go to Italy from North Africa: 6 DIM, 7 DIA, 8 DIA, Infantry regiments would suffice. Can anyone help?

    These divisions were formed after the Tunisian campaign from existing divisions, the 6 DIM from the Casablanca Division, the 7 DIA from the Division de Marche d'Alger (DMA) and the 8 DIA from the Division de Marche d'Oran (DMO). The DMA and DMO had seen action in the Tunisian campaign. For a beginning with their composition, see this thread: Phantom French units - Axis History Forum
