"Naval Administrative Histories" were written at the end of World War II to record and provide insights into the administrative aspects of U.S. naval activity in the war. The histories offer a unique combination of documents, photographs, and narrative, by such notables as Walter Lord and James Michener. Until now, they have not been available in any published form. Used in conjunction with Samuel Eliot Morrison’s History of the United States Naval Operations in World War II, the administrative histories offer scholars the most complete source available on the U.S. Navy’s wartime role.

The histories are available individually or in topical sections listed below.

Produced in cooperation with the Naval Historical Center and the Navy Department Library
