Answer This can vary depending on the Country and the Time period. WW2 - US Army An infantry regiment consisted of approximately 3000 men. The Infantry Division included 3 regiments and artillery and support units totalling 15,000 men. American Civil War - US The infantry regiment included 1000 men on paper. However, after a few battles the regiment was reduced to the size of 500 men or even down to as little as 250 men---espeically in the Confederate forces. Some of the Confederate regiments had to be consolidated into 1 unit, thus names like the 29/30th Mississippi Regiment. British - pre 1880 The British regiments were about the same size of the American's regiments in the Civil War. The British regiments were re-organized in 1880's and two numbered regiments were combined and given a territorial name, such as Bedforshire & Hertforshire Regiment. British - WW1 & WW2 British regiments grew in size to meet the need to supply troops to the large wars. The regiments created brigades, so that there was a 1st, 2nd, & 3rd Brigade within the regiment. The British local towns suffered greatly when a regiment experienced great battle losses. So the brigades were sent to different regions and campaigns. Then they created a training and a home defense brigade that would supply troops to the main figthing unit. Some well-known regiments grew as many as 12 brigades. Custermen

2-5 - a regiment is often synonymous with a brigade. In the US army there tend to be 3 while in the Russian there are usually 4. However, in the British army, a regiment is a battalion sized unit in the Royal Armoured Corps, Royal Engineers or Royal Artillery.

This will depend on several things: they type of division, the country and the period or war.

For example, the US infantry Division in WW1 had 4 regiments to a division. However, just prior to WW2, the size of the Infantry Division was reduced by having only 3 regiments per division.

Your question should be more specific.

------------------

Depends on the nation. The US army no longer uses regiments as it's divisional building blocks. The US army uses brigade combat teams.

On paper, one thousand usually, on both sides. These would be in ten companies of one hundred men each, each company commanded by a captain, usually elected by the men of the company. There was also a regimental staff of a few officers and enlisted men. Regiments were commanded by a colonel, with a lieutenant colonel second in command, and a major as third.

But in the early days of the war as companies were created in every little county seat town across both north and south, they were then collected at some bigger town and "regimented" together when ten were on hand to make a regiment. Then, they would have to be "put through the fevers". These men were almost all farm boys who had never been anywhere, and had never been exposed to childhood diseases, like measles or mumps. They got typhoid fever and typhus and dysentery too, from bad water, and small pox and scarlet fever. So as many as half of every new regiment would die or have to be discharged for medical reasons. Then when they started fighting they would lose more men. By late in the war a regiment might have three or four hundred men, and count itself strong. There was little systematic effort to bring in new recruits to replace lost men. Governors of states got to appoint colonels when new regiments were made, and this was a good source of political patronage, so instead of filling up old regiments, new ones were always being formed.

Regiments really aren't used as formations anymore, and a regimental designation is more a ceremonial thing than anything else. A regiment may be only one battalion, or it may be several. In some units, all battalions in a brigade may or may not be affiliated with the same regiment.

LOTS the way you can figure it out is by finding the number of divisions and multiplying that number by four because a division has four regiments in them
