The first three of these five volumes are in the Civil Series of the official British History of the Second World War, the last two are in the Military Series. Messrs. Hall and Wrigley deal with the problem of procurement and supplies from North America and the Eastern Hemisphere. Mr. Hammond, continuing an earlier volume, provides a number of monographs on specific commodities and on rationing. Professor Sayers deals with the policies evolved to meet the demands of war: budget policy, interest rate, capital issues control and financial relations with the Dominions and the United States. General Playfair's volume, one of a projected six on the Mediterranean and Middle East, covers Germany's assistance to Italy in the Balkans and North Africa in 1941. Of perhaps greatest general interest is Mr. Ehrman's volume on Grand Strategy, the fifth of a series of six, and covering the critical year August 1943 to September 1944, the year of the Quebec, Cairo and Teheran Conferences.
