A Pocket Guide To New Zealand (Military Personnel 1943 WWII)
2 A Pocket Guide To New Zealand (Military Personnel 1943 WWII)
Washington, D.C. War and Navy Department 1943 soft cover 
Very nice clean booklet, one of many for various countries in which U.S. military forces maintained a presence in WWII. The booklet measures 4" x 5-1/4" with 43 pages plus a blank page for notes (unused). Though the subject is serious, there are a few cartoony pages to inject a bit of humor -- there's also a map, a list of common phrases, and an overview of New Zealand slang. We have other pocket guides in the series, so let me know if you are lookingg for a specific title.

A Pocket Guide To Western Africa (For Military Personnel 1943 WWII)
3 A Pocket Guide To Western Africa (For Military Personnel 1943 WWII)
Washington D.C. Special Service Division, Army Services Forces, United States Army 1943 soft cover Very Good 
Handy and truly pocket-sized guide for WII soldiers serving in Africa. It measures just 4-1/4" x 5-1/4" and has 39 pages of information. There's also a map, a short history of the region, and what to do and not to do. Booklet is very clean and attractive. An example of the cautions is this one "Treat an Af5rican with some formality. Most Africans dislike horseplay and backslapping. They like to shake hands." I also have other guides for soldiers in other countries available.

Application for Appointment As Flying Cadet (WWII Documents 1942)
4 Application for Appointment As Flying Cadet (WWII Documents 1942)
U.S. Government 1942 Stapled papers Very good condition 
The Flying Cadets are not heard of much today, but in WWII they provided a considerable amount of personnel. Some were even on the ground working as flight engineers, armament officers, meteorologists, and photography officers. After the war, however, the ground jobs were no longer needed. The Flying Cadets, however, came back in good numbers to serve in the Korean War as pilots, navigators and bombardiers. This five page document was submitted by a Clevelander along with three positive referrals from two Cleveland companies -- two different ones from Cleveland Diesel Engine Division of General Motors and one from General Carloading Company Inc.. The four small documents are receipts for paying his premium for VA service life insurance. Three of these are dated 1945 and one is dated 1946. All are clean and nice.

Army Ordnance September-October, 1945
5 Army Ordnance September-October, 1945
Washington D.C. The Army Ordnance Association 1945 Vol. XXIX, No. 152 soft cover Very good 
Very nice, tightly bound magazine with an intact spine strip and and very clean pages and cover. The portrait on the front is that of Rear Admiral George F. Hussey, Jr., who during WWII presided over Naval Ordnance. The front of the magazine contains many ads, some of which incorporate much significant information about the products. Among the article topics are these: recoilless rifles; recoil elimination; radar in the past, present and future; rockets for aircraft; the Earthquake Bomb, The Shooting Star, Lockheed's P-80 jet-propelled plane; the atomic bomb.

Bathrooms Kitchens and Heating After
6 Bathrooms Kitchens and Heating After "V" Day By Crane Co. (1940's Relevant Ephemnera Laid-in)
Chicago, Illinois Crane Company 1940's Soft cover Fine condition 
This is more dream book than working catalog because it was printed while WWII raged on. The Crane Company knew there would be no building or remodeling until after Victory Day, but they also knew that people had stockpiled lots of war bonds for later. It was a good move because it sparked both creativity and interest while consumers waited. The booklet is filled with kitchens, baths, and heating and plumbing items. It measures 8-1/4" x 11" and has 21 colorful pages with only a few in black and white. Also laid-in is a booklet of the same size which shows many choices in various categories. Each item is drawn and has a little box to check your favorites. The previous owner has checked them in pencil, but I left it because it's fun to see what items appealed. You can erase if desired.

Collier's Magazine July 10, 1943 (General Jonathan Wainwright POW)
7 Collier's Magazine July 10, 1943 (General Jonathan Wainwright POW)
Springfield, Ohio Crowell-Collier Publishing Co. 1943 Volume 112, No. 2 soft cover Very Good 
Very nice clean magazine with just two faults -- a little foxing to bottom margin on reverse side of cover and the mailing label at front. Otherwise it's tightly bound and attractive. Measures 10-1/2"x13". The issues from the WWII era are especially good -- many color ads with a military theme and a military cover. This cover features General Jonathan Wainwright, Commander of U.S. Forces on Bataan Peninsula March 18-May 6, 1942 when he was taken as a prisoner of war in Formosa. There's an article inside about it. Other interesting articles include Presidential predictions for 1944; the opium boats, sinister "pleasure ships" which sailed from Hong Kong before the Japanese were at war, but ultimately revealed Japan's silent weapon; and life behind barbed wire. There are also a number of short stories, including one from the very popular, Faith Baldwin,

Fawick; War Record of the Fawick Airflex Clutch
8 Fawick; War Record of the Fawick Airflex Clutch
Cleveland, Ohio The Fawick Airflex Company 1945 Soft cover Good Signed by co. president Thomas L. FAWICK
Good, clean brochure not often seen. Tightly bound AND SIGNED and Inscribed by company president, Thomas L. Fawick, next to his photo inside the front cover which reads as follows: "To my good friend Gregg Phillips with best wishes. Sincerely, Thos, L. Fawick Oct, 20, 1957." The brochure itself precedes this date, as there is much emphasis on the company's contribution to the war effort. Measures 8-3/4"x11-1/4". Illustrated with color art and black and white photographs and technical drawings. Unpaginated, but I counted 20 pages.

Fred Harvey Restaurant Menu 1945 (Aid to Military Ribbon Identification)
9 Fred Harvey Restaurant Menu 1945 (Aid to Military Ribbon Identification)
Kansas Fred Harvey Restaurants 1945 card cover Very good 
Fred Harvey was a restaurant phenomenon. On this menu it sums up his amazing growth with this line, "from Cleveland to the Pacific coast." This particular menu was printed for the restaurant located in Union Station, Los Angeles and dated Monday, May 28, 1945. In addition to the patriotic cover it's interesting to see how much food has changed in America. Of course the prices are give-away by today's standards -- imagine a cocktail for 35 cents -- but you would rarely see such offerings as what Fred Harvey was serving up for lunch in '45. How about some braised smoked beef tongue with noodles and raisin sauce? Or maybe "our own baked beans with salt pork"? Nice collectible.

Generale Proklamieren Friedensregierung! WWII Propaganda Leaflet July 21,1944 (ZG 34)
10 Generale Proklamieren Friedensregierung! WWII Propaganda Leaflet July 21,1944 (ZG 34)
Germany 1944 Good 
Three tiny pin holes and remnants of two pieces of tape to upper corners are all that mar this original piece of WWII propaganda issued on July 21, 1944 following a radio speech at 1 a.m. that morning proclaiming the peace movement by leading German generals. I was able to find a translation which is the white page included with the photo. The reverse side of the original has a section which translates thus: "What This Means To You -- you know what the German Generals knew for weeks - that Germany has lost the war. The Peace Government may or may not be smashed, but no one can change the basic fact. Any German government has to capitulate in order to have peace. The conditions for you and your comrades are laid down by traditional rules of warfare and by the Geneva Convention. The generals have acted. Whatever you yourself may do remember what you now have learned." Leaflet measures 5-1/4"x8-1/2" and is printed on both sides. Includes translation.

Hit The Mark! A Play Book  (Saalfield Publishing 1943)
11 Hit The Mark! A Play Book (Saalfield Publishing 1943)
Akron, Ohio Saalfield 1943 soft cover Very good 
Book is clean and crisp with no names or penciling as per directions to play the game. It's not a title you see often because of its ephemeral lifespan. Once you've played it all, it's over. There's no date on it, but given that's it a war game it's most likely from the WWII era. The game requires a pencil and a ruler and pits the players against each other volleying "bullets, bombs, torpedoes and antiaircraft." The second picture explains how it's done. Book measures 6-3/4" x 7-3/4" and has 16 pages. Very scarce.

Navy Log. Naval Air Technical Training Center (WWII)
13 Navy Log. Naval Air Technical Training Center (WWII)
Memphis, Tennessee Naval Air Techncial Training Center Circa WWII Unknown Card cover Very good condition 
The Navy Log was the yearbook of the Navy Air Technical Training Center in Tennessee. Oddly, the booklet reports that most of the students arrived in 1942, but it doesn't tell what year they were graduating. Sadly, I can't find out how long the educational process went on which would have been clue. The booklet has many photos of officers and group portraits of the various students. Each one was given a biography. If you are looking for a person you think might be here let me know and I'll be glad to look it up for you. Just use the contact button. Yearbook measures 8-1/2" x 11.

Our Home Scrapbook No. 3, Masonite Corporation (1943)
14 Our Home Scrapbook No. 3, Masonite Corporation (1943)
U.S.A. Masonite Corproation 1943 Scrapbook No. 3 soft cover Very good condition 
I acquired this along with several other booklets advertising the dream of a new or renovated home after WWII. Most of them were dated a little closer to the end of the war -- this one is earlier at 1943. The goal was to assuage the pent-up desire with the promise of new items, new technologies, new homes. The charming French house on the first spread is the perfect opener, even if too small by today's standards. The booklet offers much information on kitchens, insulation, entrance doors, farm buildings and much more. It measures 8-1/2" x 11" with 22 pages and sports a nice Cleveland, Ohio ad for the Appalachian Hardwood Lumber Co. on the back cover. Very nice collectible.

Johannesburg, South Africa South African Prisoners of War Association 1943 Volume 1, Nos. 4, 8, 11-12 combined soft cover Good 
Three scarce magazines published in both English and Dutch for families of prisoners of war during WWII. All three are intact, but have some edge chips and toning of the high acid newsprint paper. All three measure 5-1/2" x 8-3/4" and have 16-21 pages in each language per issue. Illustrated with photos of some of the prisoners with names. Here's an example of what to expect "Music for POWS in Italy, the work of the Red Cross, the latest reports from camps in Germany and Italy, letter and parcel delays, life in a POW hospital in Italy, life in Camp 47, Italy; Facts about Stalag VIILB, news from Stalag Luft 3, and what they say themselves in the German camps.

Picture Scoop Magazine October, 1942 (1st Issue)
17 Picture Scoop Magazine October, 1942 (1st Issue)
New York Picture Scoop Inc. 1942 Vol. I, No. 1 soft cover Very Good 
This isn't a magazine you see too often, but it's a lot of fun to read. It's big one too, measuring 10x1/2" x 13-1/2" with lots of different types of stories and many, many photographs which catch the spirit of the 40's. Some stand-out stories include: a serious piece titled "Should We Draft Labor?"; Gerald L.K. Smith, successor to Father Coughlin; How To Win An Army Commission; The Story of Uncle Sam; Pleasure and Patriotism at New York's Stork Club; and Fashion with Jane Russell.

18 Quartermaster Group and Battalion Operations World War II (July, 1949)
Washington D.C. Office of the Quartermaster General 1949 Soft cover Very good condition

Red Cross War Fund WWII Ephemera 1944
19 Red Cross War Fund WWII Ephemera 1944
The American Red Cross 
Here's a WWII trio comprised of a Red Cross sticker, a leaflet from 1944 (four sided)titled "This Is My Share", and a large folded leaflet, again four-sided and from 1944, titled "Red Cross At His Side". All are in very nice clean condition, but the large one needs to be handled carefully when opened, as old paper of this type can be easily torn. So far it's done well! The large one measures 11"x16" when closed and opens to a full page spread of photographs while the reverse shows cartoons about how the Red Cross handles the injured on the road to recovery, those in home service, prisoners of war, and disaster victims. The small leaflet measures 3-1.4"x5-1/2" and is meant to garner donations.

The Story of the First Armored Division (WWII)
20 The Story of the First Armored Division (WWII)
Unknown location Field Press WWII soft cover Good-plus 
Very attractive small booklet which oddly has no publishing information other than the fact that it was approved by the Field Press Censor which sounds as though it was printed in the field of operation. I had another history which was printed likewise, so it's not without precedent. The booklet measures 4-3/4" x 6-1/2" and has 64 pages replete with numerous photographs printed on coated paper. Pages are clean and tightly boun, as is cover save some lightwear to spien sirface and a scrath to front cover near lower spine with loss of color. Over quite good.
