Committee of Imperial Defence, Historical Branch and Cabinet Office, Historical Section: War Histories: Draft Chapters and Narratives, Military
This series consists mainly of 'narratives' of events or 'Blue Books', prepared from primary sources to be used as a framework for writing the military histories. Some of these were prepared by respective Commonwealth Historical Sections and used in the British volumes. There are also some draft chapters of war histories of the First World War.
Most of the papers relate to the First and Second World Wars, although there are also files on German East Africa, 1884-1911, relations between Great Britain, Italy and the Senussi, 1912-1924; the occupation of the Rhineland 1918-1929 and of Constantinople 1918-1923.
Most pieces are arranged chronologically within original subject arrangement
