Bibliographical Note

Material included in the following pages has been drawn, for the most part, from the History of the 391st Bombardment Group, deposited in single copy, in the Archives of the Historical Division, Research Studies Institute, Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama.

By way of supplementing this information, records of the Ninth Bomber Command, the 9th Air Division, the Ninth Air Force, and such documents from the Adjutant General and Air Adjutant General files as are available here also have been consulted.

Information concerning battle credits and unit citations has been taken from War Department General Orders pertaining to the subject. This list, however, should be checked with the Awards Branch, Director of Military Personnel, Headquarters USAF, since units sometimes are entitled to credits not yet published in general orders.
