On land, the first battle against German forces was in North Africa (Morocco and Algeria) in November 1942. At sea, American forces were engaged against German forces as early as September 1939 (the battle of the Atlantic) through to May 1945. The battles at sea covered a huge area of sea including the Atlantic, North Sea and Irish Sea. The land battles were known as the 'North Africa Campaign'. Hope this helps.
