Abstract:

The project, undertaken as a joint effort of the AFHQ Historical Section and the NATOUSA later MTOUSA Historical Section, has been approached principally on the side of an over-all history of AFHQ, relating it to the major campaigns in the Theater. Consequently this over-all history has been divided chronologically into three parts 1 the pre-invasion and invasion periods August to December 1942, 2 the period of the Tunisian, Sicilian, and South Italian Campaigns December 1942 to December 1943, and 3 the period from the union with GHQ Middle East to the move to CASERTA December 1943 to 30 June 1944. After the completion of these three parts, it is planned to keep the History up to date by the addition of supplementary parts or chapters.
