  HyperWar: Report by the Supreme Commander to the CCS on Operations in Northwest Africa (TORCH)

The assault force was to consist of the 39th and 168th Regimental Combat Teams, the British 11th and 36th Brigade Groups, and the 1st and 6th Commandoes, composed of both British and American troops.
BLADE FORCE had by this time lost a total of 40 tanks, and was withdrawn on the evening of the 2nd, leaving the defense of the forward areas to the 11th Brigade, and to the armored infantry of Combat Command "B", which had now to be ordered forward in a defensive role.

  Allied Forces Headquarters - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Allied Forces Headquarters was the headquarters that controlled all Allied operational forces in the Mediterranean Theatre of World War II from late 1942 to the end of the war.
By the end of 1942, there was a need to unify the Allied forces, since those from the west landed during Operation Torch, and those from the east that had won the Second Battle of El Alamein were now close enough together to need coordination.
Therefore, in February 1943, Allied Force Headquarters assumed control of the British Eighth Army advancing from the east as well.

 Allied Plan Would Encourage Iraqis Not to Fight
David McKiernan, the commander of allied land forces if the United States leads an invasion of Iraq, said he and other commanders were working out procedures for Iraqi units to signal their intention to stay out of the war.

Iraqi forces might be asked to remove the batteries from their vehicles or turn around the turrets of their tanks so they do not face allied troops.

 Rebuttal from Colonel Krieger   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
The situation in the Northern Region is not similar in that the geography, climate, and lack of forces result in the fight being handled by geographic commanders, with separate geographic air organizations.
During the application of air power in a combat environment that encompasses large numbers of forces, the intermediate headquarters between the air component commander and the wings is vital.
It is neither efficient nor effective for a headquarters that is working one level of a problem to involve itself in the details of another level.

 [No title]
A spokesman for the UN Headquarters, referring to the letter on July 27, made clear its official stand that the U.S. forces in south Korea are not “U.N. forces” but the “U.S-led allied forces”.
It is ridiculous and brazen-faced window-dressing for the U.S. to allow its forces in south Korea to go under the helmet of the U.N. forces and maintain the “U.N. Command” which exists in name only.
Its ulterior motive is to convince the world public that the belligerent relations between the DPRK and the U.S. are those between the U.N. and the DPRK in a bid to intensify the false propaganda that the DPRK is ostracized and isolated internationally.
