Germany, 1939-44

As was mentioned in Chapter I above, the United States Strategic Bombing Survey, Overall Economic Effects Division, have prepared an extremely careful estimate of the gross product of Germany, Austria, the Sudetenland, and Memel for the years 1936 to 1944, which (like the Strategic Bombing Survey in general) has received far less than the attention which it deserves. So complete is the picture of the structure and the general development of the German economy in the war period which it affords, that it will hardly be necessary here to draw upon other sources.
