2 FUSA Rpt, Vol. 2, Annex 5; Conquer—The Story of Ninth Army, p. 113. FUSA’s losses were almost double those of the Third Army for the same period. See Cole, The Lorraine Campaign, p. 592.
3 FUSA Rpt of Opns, Annex I; Conquer—The Story of Ninth Army, p. 112; 12th A Gp G-1 Daily Summaries, 25 Sep-16 Dec 44. Ninth Army figures do not include the army’s defensive phase between 4 October and 16 November. Though figures for this period are available in 12th Army Group Daily Summaries, they apparently also include the latter stages of the campaign at Brest and thus are misleading. American losses under foreign command are noted above in Chapters VIII, IX, and X.
