The State-War-Navy Coordinating Committee (SWNCC) was the first U.S. agency to coordinate the policy-making efforts of the State Department and the Pentagon. Formed in December 1944, SENCC was to integrate diplomatic and military concerns, and plans for a national security policy following World War II. When the Department of the Air Force was created in 1947, SWNCC was renamed the State-Army-Navy-Air Force Coordinating Committee (SANACC). It then served as an advisory board to the National Security Council until June 1949, when it was absorbed into that organization.
In its five-year existence, SWNCC/SANACC produced 402 case studies covering the full range of postwar policy problems. These are published here for the first time.
