Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
During World War II, the U.S. Army's Persian Gulf Command maintained a supply line through Iran for the benefit of our Soviet allies. The first American troops of the PGC arrived in Iran in December 1942 and quickly took control of the Trans-Iranian Railway, which had been completed only three years earlier. The Persian Gulf Command moved material and supplies from port cities on the gulf through the mountains to Iran's border with the Soviet Union, by train and by truck, until the end of the war in Europe in the spring of 1945.
