US War Dept. Guide To Great Britain


\'A Short Guide To Great Britain\'. US Govt. Printing Office, 1942. P/b, 10.5x13.5cm., 33p. Essentially a guide for American troops heading for the UK. Written to give them an idea of what to expect - \'British reserved, not unfriendly\', \'Don\'t be a show off\', \'customs and manners\', the language difference, British money weights and measures etc. Fascinating little book. Shows wear and use but good overall condition. Original copy - not one of the recent reprints. Stock code P17343.
