George F. Howe Collection
The collection consists of correspondence and a copy of a Historical Journal of the Tunisian Campaign (1942-1943), kept in French by an unidentified author. The correspondence is between George F. Howe, a staff member with the War Department and later Interior Department, and Charles Nouges, French Resident General in Morocco in 1942. These letters pertain to the circumstances attending the invasion of French North Africa in November 1942 by Allied forces. Howe wrote Nogues preparatory to writing Northwest Africa: Seizing the Initiative in the West for the U.S. Army in World War II series.
