I was wondering, who was hired to rebuild the telephone systems in Germany and Japan after WWII? I don't recall AT&T being hired to install switches in Tokyo or Berlin. http://www.army.mil/cmh-pg/reference/cstb46.htm The United States Constabulary of Occupied Germany "Wherever patrols operate, they are in constant communication by radio or telephone with their platoon or troop headquarters, which are in turn linked in a chain of communications reaching up to Constabulary Headquarters. The telephone lines used by the Constabulary are, for the most part, those of the German system, although some military lines and equipment are available. In addition to radio and telephone, the Constabulary is hooked up in a teletype system, which is the most comprehensive and effective communications network operated by the United States Army in Europe."
