UNITED STATES PACIFIC FLEET
DECEMBER 1, 1943
During WWII each command had to submit a monthly War Diary detailing its activities.  Many of these diaries are available online at Fold3.com and I have made use of
them as source material on this website where appropriate.  There are War Diaries available for CINCPAC which include "snapshots" of the administrative and operation
organization of the Pacific Fleet -this organizational breakdown serves as the source for this page which was randomly selected from those available.  Note that there is
duplication of forces in some respects as units listed in Third Fleet are also listed in Fifth Fleet, for example, based on operations during the invasion of locations in the
Gilbert Islands. The War Diary does not include many commanding officers but I have inserted those I am aware of based on other source material.
