A Brief Historyof the U.S. Armyin World War II
CENTER OF MILITARY HISTORYUNITED STATES ARMYWASHINGTON, D.C., 1992
 
Introduction
World War II was the largest and most violent armed conflict inthe history of mankind. However, the half century that now separatesus from that conflict has exacted its toll on our collective knowledge.While World War II continues to absorb the interest of military schol-ars and historians, as well as its veterans, a generation of Americanshas grown to maturity largely unaware of the political, social, and mil-itary implications of a war that, more than any other, united us as a people with a common purpose.Highly relevant today, World War II has much to teach us, not onlyabout the profession of arms, but also about military preparedness,global strategy, and combined operations in the coalition war againstfascism. During the next several years, the U.S. Army will participatein the nation’s 50th anniversary commemoration of World War II. Thecommemoration will include the publication of various materials tohelp educate Americans about that war. The works produced will pro-vide great opportunities to learn about and renew pride in an Armythat fought so magnificently in what has been called “the mightyendeavor.”
 A Brief History of the U.S. Army in World War II 
highlights themajor ground force campaigns during the six years of the war, offerssuggestions for further reading, and provides Americans an opportuni-ty to learn about the Army’s role in World War II. This brochure was prepared at the U.S. Army Center of Military History by Wayne M.Dzwonchyk (Europe) and John Ray Skates (Pacific). I hope thisabsorbing account of that period will enhance your appreciation of American achievements during World War II.M. P. W. StoneSecretary of the Army
