Records of European Theater of Operations, U.S. Army

The term European Theater of Operations came to be used during the war to designate the area of operations of the United States air, ground, naval, and supply forces that joined the British forces after December 7, 1941. The Theater area eventually stretched from the British Isles to Eastern Germany and from the Scandinavian countries south to the Pyrenees, the Mediterranean, the northern border of Italy, and the Balkans. The command that was given control over United States troops in the United Kingdom in January 1942, was Headquarters United States Army Forces in the British Isles (USAFBI). Replacing it on June 8, 1942, was Headquarters European Theater of Operations United States Army (ETOUSA). On July 1, 1945 ETOUSA was renamed United States Forces European Theater (USFET) and in March 1947 USFET was renamed European Command.
