ARMY GROUND FORCES STUDIES- The Army Ground Forces Studies (AGF) were prepared during the course of World War II and published immediately thereafter. The objective was to give an account of wartime activities from the Command’s perspective, presenting the difficulties, lessons and mistakes uncovered in its operations. The series was composed of monographs on selected subjects, and of two volumes presenting an overall history. A separate volume was devoted to each of the major subordinate commands. These studies were not intended to be definitive, but rather were regarded as drafts, subject to final editing and revision.
