Two further volumes in this extensive official history. Mr. Ruppenthal's study is the first of two dealing with the enormous problem of supplying material to the American armed forces in Europe. Mr. Morton deals with a far more controversial subject: the Japanese landing in the Philippines, the American withdrawal to Bataan, and the fall of Corregidor. As the author indicates in his note on sources, the documentation for this campaign still remains a problem for the historian.
