Excerpt from The Quartermaster Corps: Operations in the War Against Japan

To Dr. Thomas M. Pitkin, Chief of the Historical Branch of the Office of The Quartermaster General until the spring of 1952, the author owes a special debt for constant and sympathetic encouragement. He is deeply obligated, too, to Dr. Louis Morton, Chief of the Pacific Section in the Office of the Chief of Military History, who made many suggestions for the improvement of the manuscript in its final revision. Without Dr. Morton's trenchant criticism, vast knowledge of Pacific problems, and keen sense of literary refinement, this volume would have been far less substantial than it is. The writer is also greatly indebted for sound advice and constructive criticism to Lt. Col. Leo J. Meyer, Deputy Chief Historian in the Office of the Chief of Military History during the writing of this manuscript, and to his successor, Dr. Stetson Conn. Some thirty officers, most of whom had participated in the activities of the Quartermaster Corps in the Pacific, read all or part of the manuscript. Of these officers, Col. James C. Longino, Assistant Quartermaster of the Sixth Army in the war against Japan, and Brig. Gen. Herbert A. Hall, formerly chief of the Management Division in the Office of The Quarter master General and now commanding general of the Utah General Depot, made particularly valuable recommendations.
