"Total defense must plan to fight, to win, and above all to survive war. This means some plan along lines similar to the experience tested by the United States War Industries Board of 1917 and 1918. It must mobilize men, money, materials, morale - all resources - to give to the war-making agencies and those allied with them, such as shipping and blockage, what they want when they want it, without unnecessary deprivation or exploitation of civilians. This volume contains documents which will show what should be done and what should be avoided."
