  Chapter I: Casablanca -- Beginning of an Era: January 1943
The midwar period-roughly from January 1943 to the establishment of a foothold in Normandy in the summer of 1944-was the period of increasing plenty.
Into this vacuum and state of uncertainty the President, at the Casablanca Conference in January 1943, introduced the principle of unconditional surrender-a concept that was to have important consequences for the Allied coalition as well as for the American military staff for the remainder of the war.
The Casablanca Conference merely recognized that the initiative would be maintained by the Allies both in the Pacific and in the Mediterranean, and defined short-range objectives in those areas in terms of operations in the South-Southwest Pacific and against Sicily.
