Description:

[4], 104, [8] pages. Hardcover: H 31.25cm x L 23.25cm. Red cloth lightly soiled, slight scuffing at bumped spine ends, light wear at tips of board corners. Toning along edges of endpapers; 1.5cm tear at upper fore-edge margin of front free endpaper. Colorful patriotically illustrated presentation and certification pages precede the book's title page; lines for presentation page remain blank but certification page has ink inscription for Technical Sergeant A.L. Goodman as being a member of Headquarters Battery Second Battalion, 114th Field Artillery as of October 13, 1941 (with Goodman's headshot photo on page 88). A few scattered spots of soiling to interior pages; ink signature of Captain Henry Hunter below portrait headshot on page 87; signatures of four other officers under their respective headshots at top of page 88. Concluding four leaf (i.e. eight page) Autographs/Snapshots section has soiled first leaf with 55 ink signatures and hometown notations by fellow servicemen most of whom hailed from Starkville, Mississippi. Pages are otherwise clean. Binding is firm. Else a very good- copy. Laid-in at front endpapers are {#1} postally unused postcard with b/w photo image titled "Christy Tank ~ Ft. Knox Ky" (#6439 Kirkpatrick 619 W. Wash St. Indianapolis) which is presumably a prewar tank design prototype by J. Walter Christie and {#2} a sheet listing individuals (including organizer Captain Goodman) appearing in a Starkville National Guard unit photo although, unfortunately, the photo itself is not present. Pages 9-10 offer "History of the 31st Division" with lengthier section "The National Guard; A Component of the Army of the United States" on pages 17-40 plus other text and photos regarding the 56th Field Artillery Brigade on pages 41-48. Commanding officer and regimental staff of the 114th Field Artillery on pages 49-53. "History of the 114th Field Artillery" on pages 54-55 with b/w photographs inclusive to page 64; "Personnel 114th Field Artillery" on pages 65-103 feature typical b/w headshots of officers and soldiers seen in other class books or high school annuals and include Headquarters Battery, Band, HQ Battery First Battalion, Service Battery First Battalion, and Batteries A, B, C, and G followed by HQ Second Battalion, Service Battery, and Batteries D, E, F, and H plus Medical Detachment. It is likely that the initial sections were prepared by The Army and Navy Publishing Company as generic boilerplate and replicated in their other class training books for Fort Blanding. However, the relevant text and photos regarding the 114th Field Artillery were obviously prepared specifically for this edition. An interesting record of National Guard troops activated to US Army duty just a few months before America's direct involvement in World War II. Bookseller Inventory #
