A Report to the Under Secretary of War and the Chief of Staff by the Director of the Service, Supply, and Procurment Division, War Department General Staff.
As we commemorate World War II from the perspective of fifty years, the names of the "Great Captains" who directed the combat effort are often recalled. Generals Eisenhower, MacArthur, Bradley, Patton, and a host of other field commanders are known to the most casual students of the U.S. Army's role in the war. Yet these men could not have achieved their victories, the Army Air Forces could not have conducted its campaigns, and America's Allies could not have stayed in the war if other men, largely forgotten today, had not been equally proficient as military leaders. This book provides an overview of the accomplishments of those forgotten heroes who helped produce battlefield victories. It is the story of the Army Service Forces, told throuigh that headquarters' after-action report, originally published in 1947.
