World War II Conference Code Names
"History Is A Vast Early Warning System" Norman Cousins
But Only Those With An EDUCATION, Know This.....

This post focuses on the Code Names used by the USA for World War II Conferences. A separate post (US Military Code Names For Operations - A Pearl In Their Harbour) contains a list of Code Names used During WWII, the Korean War, Vietnam War, Gulf War, etc

An Introduction to World War II Code Names
On August 8, 1943 Winston Churchill (British Prime Minister) wrote to General "Pug" Ismay, Military Secretary of the Defence Committee of the British Cabinet: ".....Operations in which large numbers of men may lose their lives ought not to be decided by code-words that imply a boastful and over-confident sentiment, such as "Triumphant,"..... Proper names are good in this field. The heroes of antiquity, figures from Greek and Roman mythology, the constellations and stars, famous racehorses, names of British and American war heroes, could be used...." The name OverLORD* (6 June 1944/ 06 06 1944) was chosen by the British Prime Minister, Winston CHURCHill*. This Link Provides Information About Code Names Used By Different Countries. Code Names - Wiki

Many of the names used for World War II Conferences can be recognized as portraying devices or instruments with an ordinal Latin number as its prefix. In only Two Cases Latin/Greek Prefixes can be observed: Conference Tri-dent and Oct-agon - (3)Tri and (8)Oct are Both Latin and Greek. If you split an 8, 33 materializes.

Conference # Five is missing from this list and no public explanation can be found. In Latin, 5 is Quinque and in Greek, Penta. It could be assumed Five is intentionally missing or perhaps represents a hidden pentagram or even the Pentagon, the construction of which was completed on 15 January 1943, the same year in which the (4)Quadrant and (6)Sextant Conferences were held.

Dates Have Been Taken from the Foreign Relations of the United States Series at http://digicoll.library.wisc.edu/FRUS/. Some of the meanings of Conference names/words have been taken from a variety of sources including Dictionary.Com!
