Scarce U.S. Army publication, the official U.S. 7th Army report on the concentration camp at Dachau, 72pp. 4to., prepared and distributed to members of the unit by its Office of Strategic Services (OSS) section following the discovery of the camp by elements of the unit in April of 1945. The publication is made up of three separate reports, submitted by the 7th Army's Psychological Warfare Branch, Counter-Intelligence Detachment, and the OSS itself, with an introduction by the unit's Acting Chief of Staff, Col. William W. Quinn. The OSS report focuses on the organization of the camp and the makeup of its prisoner population, while the PWB section summarizes the relationship between the camp and the town of Dachau. The CIC section reports on the liberation of the camp on April 29, 1945, and contains descriptions of life at the camp and the brutality faced by its prisoners, bolstered by several eyewitness statements. The publication is illustrated with thirty b/w photographs showing the layout of the camp, the prisoners - some living but mostly dead - and its liberation. The booklet shows some creasing and bumps to the covers and minor soiling throughout, with a faint ownership inscription in pencil on the front cover, else very good.
