  European Theater of Operations - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The European Theater of Operations, or ETO, is the term used in the United States to refer to US operations north of the Mediterranean coast, in the European Theater of World War II.
Operation Torch, the landings in North Africa, were referred to as occurring in the North African Theater of Operations and then later (December 10, 1944)[1], when the theater was redefined to include Italy, as the Mediterranean Theater of Operations or MTO.
The term "theater of operations" was defined in the [American] field manuals as "the land and sea areas to be invaded or defended, including areas necessary for administrative activities incident to the military operations" (chart 12).

What and how three and one-half to four million Americans contributed to victory in the European Theater of Operations (ETO) during World War II is told in the ten volumes of the European subseries of the United States Army in World War II.
Because the end purpose of all activity in the theater was-as always in war-to close with the enemy and destroy him, a majority of the volumes deal with tactical operations.
Special attention is given to Operation GRENADE and the sweep to the Rhine; the seizure of the Remagen bridge; the multiple crossings of the Rhine; and the employment of airborne troops in Operation VARSITY.

 CHAPTER X
In the European theater, 46 percent of the officers of the Medical Department entering the Ground Forces Reinforcement Command during the period of ground combat came from detachments of patients in hospitals.
European theater designated to participate in the invasion of North Africa were brought up to strength by drawing upon other medical establishments which were to remain behind in the United Kingdom.
In the European theater, however, it was noted in June 1944 that, while this reorganization would render 79 medical officers surplus, only about 14 of these would be qualified to fill professional assignments suitable to their rank, since the great majority of them had been promoted strictly on the basis of their administrative ability.

 European Theater of Operations   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The European Theater of Operations, or ETO, was the term used by the United States in World War II to refer to all Allied military activity in and around the continent of Europe, including North Africa.
The Operation TORCH[?] landings in North Africa were referred to as occurring in the North African Theater of Operations or NATO and then later (November 1, 1944) as the Mediterranean Theater of Operations or MTO.
Part of the confusion is perhaps caused by Dwight Eisenhower's multiple command appointments; he was appointed to command "European Theater of Operations, United States Army" (ETOUSA) in July 1942, but in November he also commanded the Allied forces in TORCH.

 EUROPEAN THEATER: OVERVIEW
Operation TORCH, 8 November 1942, was the first major American ground operation of the war.
The North African French colonies of Morocco and Algeria were invaded to open a second front, demanded by Stalin to siphon off German forces from his Eastern front, and to cut off the Afrika Korps line of retreat from their loss at El Alamein.
The Anglo-American operation was commanded by Dwight D. Eisenhower from the British base at Gibraltar.

Better yet, Advanced ETO's production model is an exact duplication of the actual production figures from the Second World War, providing players with a genuine simulation of the industrial aspect of World War II in Europe.
Advanced ETO even includes numerous naval vessels that were planned but never completed-allowing the players some very interesting "what if" possibilities.
Best of all, Advanced ETO can be played as an exciting grand strategic game (from the beginning of the war to the end), or as one of the many quick campaigns or scenarios.

The third volume in Osprey's new Battle Order series, US Armored Divisions: The European Theater of Operations 1944-1945, is quite good but demonstrates that the format has not yet reached maturity.
Operational logistics - particularly the impact of the fuel crunch in the fall of 1944 - are virtually ignored.
Readers should also be cognizant that Zaloga does not attempt to summarize all US armored operations in Europe in 1944-1945, merely operations he deems representative.

 American Naval Participation in the Great War (With Special Reference to the European Theater of Operations)
On account of the immense theater of war and the length and number of lines of communication, and the material deterioration resulting from three years' continuous operation with inadequate base facilities, the strength of the allied naval forces is dangerously strained.
Previously the submarines had operated through a distance of several hundred miles from the coast and a large proportion of the sinkings were in that area.
That they were successful in their subsequent operations against the highly efficient enemy submarines is even more creditable, since it involved every element of naval efficiency, from the operation and maintenance of the individual vessels themselves to highly complicated naval tactics.

Armies frequently have to take everything they might need with them because they operate beyond the frontiers of civilization--or because war has destroyed most of the things we take for granted, but need for routine, day-to-day operations.

and in no single operation had it carried less than its share of the burden or looked bad when compared to the forces on its flanks.

While there is no doubt that Abrams made a major contribution in the European Theater of Operations in 1944-45, it is a mistake to try and focus so heavily upon a single battalion commander and portray him as "typical" of the breed.
Furthermore, as a former tanker myself, I found that the volume did not adequately portray the feel of platoon and company-level armor operations.
What Zaloga delivers is a portrayal of US tank combat through the eyes of a field grade officer, not the typical platoon and company-level tankers who bore the brunt of the fighting.
