This volume is the first in a series which will record the experiences of the Quartermaster Corps in World War II. It should serve to impress students of military affairs, particularly those in staff and command positions, with the vastness and complexity of the activity involved in equipping and maintaining troops in the field. It tells a story of rapid expansion to meet the needs of a growing Army, of organizational readjustment in the midst of operations, of supply programs scrapped or modified in the face of unexpected demands, of improvisation and production under pressure when plans were inadequate or lacking. It clearly demonstrates the necessity in time of peace for a flexible organization, vision and care in planning, and a program of continuous military research and development to meet the sudden impact of war.

Cape Hatteras National Seashore was authorized by Congress on August 17, 1937, and established on January 12, 1953. As the nation's first national seashore, it encompasses 30,000 acres and crosses three islands, Bodie, Hatteras, and Ocracoke, for approximately 70 miles. Nearby Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge, located within the authorized seashore boundary, is 5,880 acres. Over the centuries, the seashore has witnessed major historic events, including the landing of the first English explorers, the death of Blackbeard the pirate, Civil War battles, German U-boat attacks, hundreds of shipwrecks, and devastating hurricanes. Descended from horses brought over by Spanish explorers, the Ocracoke ponies still roam the landscape. This National Park Service unit also includes the majestic Bodie Island, Cape Hatteras, and Ocracoke Lighthouses. The seashore is a haven for wildlife and recreational beachgoers. Cape Hatteras National Seashore showcases the rich natural and cultural heritage of America's first national seashore.

Originally puiblished in 1967. This historical report on the Army's participation in the enforcement of an order of the Federal District Court at Little Rock Arkansas between 24 September 1957 and 20 May 1958, with regard to integration in the public schools of that city, was originally prepared almost contemporaneously with the events that it covers. It has not been extensively revised since that time. Primarily written from the vantage point of the command post in ODCSOPS (Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations). The essential background story has then been compiled in part from Army records (and in part from newspaper, magazine, and other published material available in 1958). The following topics are addressed in this document: background of the Little Rock school crisis; preparation of contingent plans for the use of federal troops; President's Executive Order and its implementation, 24 September 1957; enforcement of the court order at Little Rock, 25-29 September 1957; the chain of command and the Pentagon organization; preparation for other possible contingencies; the Air National Guard and the question of command channels; the second crisis, 30 September - 3 October 1957; problems in the Arkansas National Guard; the first reduction plan, 4-15 October 1957; release and adjustments in the Arkansas National Guard, 15-23 October 1957; reduction in operations and the second reduction in force, 23 October - 9 November 1957; withdrawal of the last airborne elements, 11-27 November 1957; third reduction in the National Guard, 27 November - 18 December 1957; the release of General Clinger; phase out plans, school incidents and dynamite scares, January 1958; hesitant reductions, 1 February - 4 April 1958; and final withdrawal, 4 April - 29 May 1958.
