OSS (Office of Strategic Servieces) of the Seventh Army, 1945. Uncommon May 1945 offical report issued soon after the liberation of Dachau, one of Europe's most notorious Concentration Camps. A solid, VG+ quarto in its stapled wrappers, with light creasing and very light soiling to the panels. Gruesome, horrific black-and-white photos thruout. Dachau was liberated on Sunday, April 29th, 1945, just one week before the end of World War II in Europe. Two divisions of the US Seventh Army, the 42nd Rainbow Division and the 45th Thunderbird Division, participated in the liberation, while the 20th Armored Division provided support. This official report on Dachau was prepared by the OSS section of the Seventh Army and contains information on the history of the camp, its composition and organization, as well as the groupings of the prisoners and information about the townspeople. The Foreword was written by Colonel William W. Quinn, who was Acting Chief of Staff, G-2 (Intelligence and Security). (Quinn would go on to become Director of the OSS and would play an important role in its change into the CIA). (Inventory #: 12658)
