This appendix represents abstracts taken from the daily COMINT summaries published by COM-14. To aid the reader in correlating these highlights with actual daily events, I have included salient extracts from Morison's History of U.S. Naval Operations. To show the correlation between COMINT and warnings issued by Washington, I have also inserted, at the appropriate times, diplomatic and OPNAV messages.
The sources are indicated as follows:
"S" indicates COM-14 Traffic Intelligence Summaries, July-December 1941, SRMN-012.
"C" indicates Radio Intelligence publication Number 87Z, The Role of Radio Intelligence in the American-Japanese Naval War, Volume I, by Ensign John V. Connorton, USNR (SRH-012).
"M" indicates Volume III, The Rising Sun in the Pacific, 1931-April 1942, by Samuel Eliot Morison.
Edited copies of the COM-14 Daily Summaries for the period 1 November-6 December 1941 may also be found in PHA, Part 17, 2601-42.
