Upon the dissolution of the War Ministry and the General Staff, and the transfer of their former functions to the De-mobilization Bureau, the general research job continued and resulted in the development of a series of historical monographs. Detailed instructions covering the preparation of these monographs were included in memoranda 15 December 1945 and 21 November 1946, subject "Japanese Operational Histories". The basic material contained in this operational record was developed by former officers, on duty in command and staff units within major units during the period of operations. It should be noted at once, that the enormous destructing destruction by aerial bombardment and fire has practically wiped out the Tokyo records ; much of this material was reconstructed from memory. The paucity of original orders, plans and unit journals, which are normally essential in the preparation of this type of record, most of which were lost or destroyed during field operations or bombing raids rendered the task of compilation most difficult ; particularly distressing has been the complete lack of official strength reports, normal in AG or G-3 records. However, while many of the important orders, plans and estimates have been reconstructed from memory and therefore are not textually identical with the originals, they are believed to be generally accurate and reliable. Further data as a result of continuing research and the occasional recovery of hitherto unavailable original documents will be covered in the subsequent publication of " supplements" by the Demobilization Bureau. The action under this memorandum and incidental detailed instructions, which followed, were initiated by the Assistant Chief of Staff, G-2, GHQ, charged with responsibility for execution of the program under G.O. No. 9 SCAP, 2 October 1945. In oder to protect the interest of the United States, in the exploitation of Japanese Military Information, -sub-paragraph 4 of G.O. No. 9 further provided for the screening of enemy documents and establishing inventories in Japanese Government Archives. Careful examination of the first records submitted by the japanese Government in the summer of 1946 detected a misconception on the part of the Japanese as to what should be included in comparative histories ; in memorandum issued by Assistant Chief of Staff, G-2, on 21 November 1946, the Imperial Japanese Government was directed to record the operations of the Japanese forces more extensively. The G-2 Section thereafter assumed coordination of the entire program, including the establishment of a small historical research section within the ATIS (Allied Translator and Interpreter Section)
