Abstract:

This report presents a statistical summary of War Department lend-lease activities reported for the period March 1941 through December 1945. It provides quantitative data on lend-lease transactions aggregating more than 24,000,000,000 and supplements the material presented in the lend-lease histories that have been prepared by War Department agencies. The report covers both dollar values and physical quantities of material made available to other governments for the purpose of defeating the Axis powers. It includes activities of the Army Air Forces, the Army Service Forces and overseas theatres. The report has been prepared to serve information purposes of the War Department it is not an official statement of the items transferred to any foreign government, the bills rendered to them, or of amounts debited to their accounts. All figures in this report are subject to later revision as progress is made in determining complete and final lend-lease data. It is believed that the greatest changes will occur in the dollar values for theatre transfers from Army stocks and for returns of lend-lease articles by foreign governments.
