This book is perhaps the most little read and yet at the same time the most important official history you will read about WW2. If you really want to understand the nature of second world war an understanding of how management of merchant shipping and the control of port clearance is essential.

In most areas of the war FDR relegated management to his military commanders. The only aspect of the war which he maintained direct control of was the ‘War Shipping Administration, such was its importance to Allied strategy.

The ‘Germany First’ strategy was not a choice, but something forced upon the US Army. Eisehnower pointed out in a very influential paper that a campaign in the Pacific would take 4 times as many ships as a campaign Europe and that it was the shortage of shipping load that determined strategy.
