Memorandum by the United States Chiefs of Staff1
[Washington,] 31 August 1943.
- Lack of clear understanding between theater commanders and the Combined Chiefs of Staff concerning the propaganda to be used in furtherance of agreed operations has led to discrepancies which have had embarrassing implications.
- Effective coordination between the theaters and all propaganda agencies of the United Nations can be assured if propaganda plans are prepared and approved in advance of operations. It is therefore recommended that the attached directive to all theater commanders be approved by the Combined Chiefs of Staff.
