    Hi all,
    Been a while since I posted, but I just acquired three books that belonged to my dad from his time in the Army in WWII and three additional WWII-era manuals I found while 'shopping at Curby's' (a.k.a. in the curbside recycling!):
    The first two are my dad's they are from, I think, his days in Field Artillery school (?):



    I can post images of the reverse of the two red books if there is interest...they look similar but have different info on the reverse for each.
    The third book was also my dad's from his time in the service...is this Army issue? I have no idea what it is, but it relates to radio repair, I think.


    Inside cover:


    It contains a lot of notes and technical drawings.

    Here are the last three, which I found in the paper recycling:




    Any ideas about how rare (or not!) these are would be great, as well as ways I can properly take care of them, especially my dad's books. If you would like to see any of the detail from inside any of the books, please let me know.

    Fairly rare, I think. TheLoneSentry.com or Milspecmanuals.com might have PDF copies.

    If you're interested in contributing copies to the Internet I can give them a home.
