Abstract:

This volume is concerned with the organization and disposition of United States Army ground forces that opposed the Japanese during World War II. The area covered includes Alaska, the islands of the central and South Pacific, Australia, New Guinea, New Zealand, the Philippines, Okinawa, China, Burma, and India. The period covered is 7 December 1941, the date of the attack on Pearl Harbor, through 15 August 1945, the date of cessation of hostilities in the Pacific. This volume provides information on the following subjects: activations; reorganizations; redesignations; location of units; location of command posts; missions; operations; designations, formation and dissolution of task forces; commanders; assignment of units; attachment of units; and intraservice command relationships. Part one is devoted to administrative and logistical commands. Each chapter deals with the administrative and logistical commands within one geographical area. The highest administrative command within the area is usually treated first, followed by the subordinate administrative and logistical commands. Each command has a short introduction, followed by a record of events of the headquarters, a list of commanders, a list of the next higher commands to which the command in question was assigned or attached, a brief treatment of the subordinate commands, and a list of the types of documents used in the compilation of the record of events. Part two is devoted to armies, corps, and divisions. Commands of equal rank are arranged numerically within each chapter. There is a record of events for each command, followed by a list of commanders, a list of the next higher commands to which the command in question was assigned or attached, a list of organic units for each division, and a list of the types of documents used in the compilation of the record of events. -- Abstract.
