Abstract : The Commission on Merchant Marine and Defense, also known as the Denton Commission, was charged by Public Law with studying the problems relating to the transportation of cargo and personnel for national defense purposes during time of war and national emergency. Specifically, they were tasked to analyze the ability of the merchant marine industry to meet the wartime and mobilization requirements of the nation. This paper will analyze the four reports of the Denton Commission, collectively known as the Denton Report, assess the Commission's analysis of the problem, critique key recommendations, and provide my recommendations and conclusions to the dilemma.
