The XXIII Corps of the U.S. Army was activated on 15 January 1944 at Camp Bowie, Texas. During the Second World War, XXIII Corps served in the European Theater of Operations as part of the Fifteenth United States Army.

After the end of the war the corps was inactivated on 10 February 1946 in Germany and disbanded on 12 July 1950.

XXIII Corps served primarily as an occupation and military government force around Trier, Koblenz, and areas of western Germany (the southern area of what was termed the "Rhineprovince Military District") to the south from April 1945. The corps command post was at Idar-Oberstein. The area occupied by XXIII Corps was turned over to the French Army on 10 July 1945.

As of 10 May 1945, units subordinated to the XXIII Corps included the 28th Infantry Division, the 54th Anti-Aircraft Artillery Brigade, and the 214th, 425th, and 426th Field Artillery Groups.
