A Short Guide to Great Britain

War & Navy Departments

Washington DC

During World War II the US War and Navy Departments published an extensive series of pamphlets for use individually by military personnel travelling to Great Britain. These are basically travel guides with a military/World War II twist.

Initially (1942) the pamphlets were titles “A Short Guide to….” Later the names were changed to “A Pocket Guide to….” The booklets  include appropriate geographical, cultural, monetary information, a local language guide and other information that would be of use. Additionally, the booklets include political and military information which is from a decidedly United States 1942-1944 point of view.
