Green pictorial paper covers well soiled with a few nicks at edges, some scuffing along spine fold with short tear at head and binding staples rusted, front cover's corners curled with dark staining at lower fore-edge, patch of surface peeling at bottom edge of rear cover with slender brown stain at top edge which also affects top margins of last five interior leaves. Curled top corners to several initial leaves; light soiling and a few foxing spots to interior pages with some creasing as well. A good copy. B/w photographs of camp life and training throughout accompanied by brief explanatory text. Publication summarized in page 1 Foreword as "This pictorial review of Camp Callan endeavors to sketch, photographically, the overall picture of this Army camp and its training program. It touches on practically every phase of the life and activities of this replacement training center . . . It is also intended that this review be a definite aid to the 'folks back home' in understanding the environment, the day-to-day training routine and the recreations of their men in olive drab." No publication-printing information is provided but the text cites Camp Callan's construction as starting in 1940 with the initial training class received in February 1941. B/w photographs on page 18 show a training exercises in a "Little Tokyo" village clearly indicating advanced US military involvement in the Pacific theatre. OCLC cites a 1943 fourth edition of CAMP CALLANDER at the University of California, San Diego as the only one among all member libraries. Although it seems likely that this copy dates from 1943, nothing in the text allows such a specific date/edition attribution but one may be able to derive a possible date range from visual clues within the training images or from the tenure of camp commander Colonel George F. Humbert and commanding Brigadier General LaRhett L. Stuart. Bookseller Inventory #
