Was there a draft in world war two?

Not directly. The selective service was instituted rather than a draft.

Yes there was. The World War II draft operated from 1940 until 1946 when further inductions were suspended, and its legislative authorization expired without further extension by Congress in 1947. During this time, more than 10 million men had been inducted into military service.
