Joint Reception Staging Onward Movement and Integration (JRSOI): The Commanders Role in Integration [open pdf - 2MB]
From the Thesis Abstract: "The US Army's Joint Reception Staging Onward movement and Integration (JRSOI) operations were perfected during World War II and provided Allied Forces the ability to amass overwhelming combat power on Axis Forces during Operation Overlord. The study follows VII Corps and Major General J. Lawton Collins during the winter of 1944 as he prepares the corps for the amphibious assault on Utah Beach in England. Major General Collins conducts multiple iterations of JRSOI throughout the Operation Overlord campaign while simultaneously conducting tactical operations to meet mission objectives. The case study investigates Major General Collins integrations of VII Corps in England in the winter of 1944 until D-Day and examines the JRSOI operations during the days following D-Day as VII Corps attempts to generate combat power to move inland to capture the city of Cherbourg, France on 26 June 1944."
