About this Item

224, wraps, figures, charts, appendices, index, edges stained, covers worn, soiled, and stained, several page corners bent. Stamp on front cover crossed out in marker. The material contained in this manual supersedes Part One, Coast Artillery Field Manual, Volume II, June 1, 1938. Thus this manual more clearly reflects the state of knowledge and the standards of practice at the start of U.S. Army involvement in World War II. A substantial portion of this manual is devoted to tactics. Topics covered include organization (organization of units, assignment of units, duties of antiaircraft artillery staff officers); and tactics (operation, characteristics of weapons, control of fire, aerial targets, tactical employment in rear areas, tactical employment in forward areas, tactical employment in coastal frontier defense, signal communication, antiaircraft artillery intelligence service and liaison, reconnaissce, selection, and occupation of position, security and protection, marches of units, supply and evacuation, estimates, plans, and orders, and antiaircraft defense plan). There are two appendices: characteristics of antiaircraft artillery guns and automatic weapons; and prescribed ammunition loads--antiaircraft regment, mobile. Bookseller Inventory # 50516
