La 2e division blindée était une division blindée de l'United States Army créée pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Elle était surnommée Hell on Wheels (littéralement 2 "Enfer sur les Roues"). Elle joua un rôle crucial lors de l'opération Torch, de l'invasion de la Sicile, de la Libération de la France et du Benelux avant de participer à la campagne d'Allemagne en pénétrant la ligne Siegfried. Elle était commandée par le général George Patton en personne de novembre 1940 à janvier 1942.

The 2nd Armored Division ("Hell on Wheels") was an armored division of the United States Army. The division played an important role during World War II in the invasions of North Africa and Sicily and the liberation of France, Belgium, and the Netherlands and the invasion of Germany. During the Cold War, the division was primarily based at Fort Hood, Texas, and had a reinforced brigade forward stationed in West Germany. The 2nd Armored was formed at Fort Benning, Georgia on 15 July 1940. It was originally commanded by Major General Charles L. Scott, with Colonel George S. Patton in charge of training. Scott was promoted to command the I Armored Corps in November of that year, which put Patton, now a brigadier general, in command of the division. The Division served with the First, Seventh, and Ninth Armies.
