Historical Summaries (DAHSUMs)

Since 1969 the U.S. Army Center of Military History has produced the Department of the Army Historical Summary (DAHSUM)as an annual publication. An overview of the successes and problems of major Army programs during a given Fiscal Year, the DAHSUMs seek to provide a record similar to, but more concise than, that published in the annual reports of the Secretrary of War from 1822 to World War II and in the Army's portion of the Semiannual Report of the Secretary of Defense from 1949 through 1968.
