 Chapter XV: The Victory Sealed
SHAEF had included the EAC surrender instrument in the ECLIPSE plans and had assumed it was the document the Germans would sign if they signed one at all, which by the time jodl arrived had begun to seem unlikely.
SHAEF had sent drafts of the Act of Military Surrender to Washington, London, and Moscow on 6 May and received reactions from Churchill and Winant before the signing but not from Washington or Moscow.
Eisenhower made a strong case for keeping SHAEF until the forces were redisposed in their national zones and the Control Council was operating effectively-which, his staff predicted, would take at least three months.

 Chapter V: SHAEF's New Missions
From Slash 100, SHAEF derived both the requirement for and the limits of its participation in the occupation of Germany.
SHAEF, he said, was beginning to plan for military government in Germany, recognizing that its direct concern was only with the first phase, but such SHAEF decisions could affect the whole occupation machinery.
The JCS, therefore, agreed that SHAEF would most likely have to establish military government in Germany and maintain it for what "could be considerable length of time" after the capitulation.

 The Unknown Patton Chapter Six (Shaef's Three Major Errors)
First, SHAEF claimed that the British had "heavily sewn the Falaise area with time bombs." Secondly, Bradley claimed that he not only feared a head on collision of the British and Americans, he also was worried that the fleeing Germans might "trample" the Third Army in it's rush to escape.
One of Eisenhower's problems was that his SHAEF headquarters was located at Granville, near Cherbourg, a distance of 400 miles from the battle front.
As early as December 12, 1944, Koch had begun preparing and transmitting reports to SHAEF regarding what he considered to be a dangerous buildup of Germans east of the 1st Army's 8th Corps.

 Staff Report: Chapter IV
SHAEF policies reflected the fact that the Army did not have the time, manpower, or resources to perform detailed inspections of caches recovered during active military operations.
SHAEF acknowledged that MFAandA officers could not possibly inspect and protect large numbers of small repositories in forward areas, and that, at least initially, the Army lacked sufficient transportation resources to move the art to safer locations.
SHAEF ordered the Army Groups to report by June 1, 1945 the buildings they had selected to serve as central repositories and the dates that concentration and inventories would be completed.

 National Redoubt - InformationBlast
Some Germans expected that the Soviets and the western powers would soon come to blows when their armies met in the centre of Germany, and believed that if there was still a German government functioning in the south it could come to terms with one side or the other.
SHAEF received reports that German military, government and Nazi Party offices and their staffs were leaving Berlin for the area around Berchtesgaden, the site of Hitler's retreat in the Bavarian Alps.
But while it persisted, this legend of the Redoubt was too ominous a threat to be ignored." SHAEF nominated concern about the Redoubt as one of three reasons the Allies decided to shift their main thrust away from Berlin to Southern Germany in April 1945.

 CHAPTER XII
To advise the SHAEF G-5 Supply Branch as to the requirements of the civil population regarding medical, sanitary and food supplies in the interest of military operations, including quantities, kinds, and the times and places at which needed.
From the records, it is evident that G-5 SHAEF alone could not have handled its supply problems, and that the planning had been wise, allowing for valuable liaison between G-5 SHAEF and the Office of the Chief Surgeon, ETOUSA, and the medical establishments of armies, army groups, and communications zones.
The Missions were destined to serve as liaison bodies between the national governments of the liberated countries and the Allied military authorities so that each might help the other to the extent that their common interests required in the prosecution of the war and in works of rehabilitation.
