*These are for the most part include the same data but have been put out at various times by presenting the same data in different manners.  It is assumed that all of these items were published by the DR Public Relations Dept.

**All GM Divisions in 1944 were directed by GM Headquarters to put out a book on their participation in the war effort.  They all make for interesting reading as to what products were made to support the war.  "Our War Job" is over 70 color pages and is in my estimation one of the better ones produced.
