About the Book

This is the story of how the manpower problems were solved during the period from V-J Day to the completion of demobilization on September 1, 1946. In demobilizing the Navy, the major problem was to organize and administer the manpower program to serve the special needs of separation centers, and, at the same time, to reconcile the conflicting interests of the Navy personnel officer and the civilian personnel administrator in the Navy hierarchy. On V-J Day, the Navy had over three and a half million uniformed personnel scattered over the face of the earth. In the space of a single year, the Navy returned three million to civilian life.
