Global Logistics and Strategy, 1940-1943

Bibliographical Note? and Guide to Footnotes

Global Logistics and Strategy, like the previous volumes published in the series UNITED STATES ARMY IN WORLD WAR II, is based largely, though far from exclusively, upon records of various agencies of the War Department, most of them at present in the physical custody of the Departmental Records Branch, Adjutant General's Office, Department of the Army (DRB AGO). These records are generally described in Federal Records of World War II, Vol. II, Military Agencies, prepared by the General Services Administration, Archives and Records Service, The National Archives ( Washington, 1951). The range of records consulted has necessarily been broad, ranging from those of the joint and combined agencies for strategic planning at the top to the lower agencies in the War Department charged with logistical operations. The enormous volume of logistical business in which the War Department was involved is reflected in the bulky and generally amorphous bodies of records of this business that have been preserved. In sifting this mass of records, the authors have been aided to a limited degree by the monographic studies prepared during the war and afterward under the supervision of the Office, Chief of Military History, or other staff agencies, and by the researches of their colleagues on various volumes in UNITED STATES ARMY IN WORLD WAR II, published and unpublished.

Information in the footnote citations of documents and manuscript histories is designed to identify each sufficiently for the needs of researchers having a passing familiarity with Army files. File references have not been given in cases where documents can be readily located in certain master serial files. In this category fall the minutes and papers of the Joint Board (JB), Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), Combined Chiefs of Staff (CCS), and other joint and combined committees, the Munitions Assignments Board (MAB) and the Munitions Assignments Committee (Ground) (MAC (G)); certain letters and directives issued by The Adjutant General's Office; general orders and memoranda of various Army headquarters. Messages identified only by CM-IN and CM-OUT numbers with date may be located in the Classified Message Center serial file. In general, file references at present can be located through the Historical Records Section, DRB AGO, and manuscript drafts prepared by Army agencies through the General Reference Section, Office of the Chief of Military History (OCMH). If, as is anticipated, these materials are eventually retired to National Archives, the fundamental arrangement of files will in all probability remain the same.

The files of the various staff agencies of Headquarters, Army Service Forces (ASF), make up the most important single group of records used in preparation of this volume (see Federal Records, pp. 252-
