Historical Program Of The U S Army 1939 To Present [1945]

by Bell I. Wiley

Office of the Chief of Military History Department of the Army

[Note: This manuscript was prepared following the end of World War II. It documents the evolution of an important piece of the Army's historical effort--one which became a key element of the Office of the Chief of Military History (OCMH) which is today the US Army Center of Military History (CMH). The original manuscript is on file in the Historical Manuscripts Collection (HMC) under file number 2-3.7 AB.A, which should be cited in footnotes, along with the title. It is reproduced here with only those limited modifications required to adapt to the World Wide Web; spelling, punctuation, and slang usage have not been altered from the original, although interlinear notes have been converted to chapter endnotes. Where modern explanatory notes were required, they have been inserted as italicized text in square brackets.]
