John Hanes and I were invited by the Secretary of War to make
a trip of inspection to Europe.
The Secretary wished us to see what the Army had done and
was doing in Europe, and the part the American G.I. had played
in winning the war.
The War Department officials said they were very eager to
have publishing executives observe the scenes of the War and the
conduct of the occupation so that they would possess background
material for their publishing activities.
In short, the Army is proud, and rightfully so, of its splendid
job and is eager to have the press observe freely and report
accurately the accomplishments.
