    • American Forces in Action No. 10, Historical Division, War Dept., Washington, D.C., February 18, 1946, 149 pages, 45 photos, 3 charts, 10 maps. The first full-scale effort to recover from the Japanese some of their strongholds in the Central Pacific was the expedition to the Gilbert Islands in November 1943. Army, Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard furnished components of the expeditionary forces. The Army elements were commander by Maj. Gen. Ralph C. Smith. They comprised the 27th Infantry Division Task Force, derived principally from that division but with many provisional units attached. This work narrates the Army's part of the campaign, which was the prelude to later advance among the Marshall Islands. This study was based upon a first narrative prepared in the filed from military records and from notes and interviews recorded during the operation by Lt. Col. S. L. A. Marshall. His manuscript was edited and partially rewritten with the help of additional documentation by Maj. John M. Baker and Dr. George F. Howe. This was the 10th volume in the American Forces in Action series. The series presented detailed accounts of particular combat operations of United States forces. To the American public, this record of high achievement by men who served their nation well was presented as a preface to the full military history of World War II. To the soldiers who took part in the operations concerned, these narratives gave the opportunity to see more clearly the results of orders which they obeyed and of sacrifices which they and their comrades made, in performance of missions that find their meaning in the outcome of a larger plan of battle.
