PREFACE
The origin of this book lies in the Railway Correspondence and Travel Society who sponsored much of my research into the activities of the British and American military locomotives of World War Two. Some of the information so gained was published in a series of articles in the Railway Observer from 1949 to 1958, now long out of print.
This work is to be published in two parts. One will deal with the War Department locomotives and the other with the United States Army Transportation Corps locomotives. It gives the most detailed history of WD and USA/TC locomotives ever assembled, and it is based on research work carried out for nearly thirty years. While published sources have been used, the majority of the data given has not been published before. Similarly, most of the photographs have not been published previously.
