23" x 10.5", approx. 75, wraps, spiralbound, 30 large color maps, covers somewhat worn and soiled. The maps in this atlas have been specially prepared for use in the course in Geography, Basic Phase, Army Specialized Training Program, to reinforce the study of physical, economic, and political geography. The maps show the natural features of the world, political divisions, and distribution ofman, social and cultural institutions, raw materials, industry, and transportation facilities. The Preface states that "Most of the maps in this Atlas are original and hitherto have not been published." Some were based on maps in other publications and were acknowledged. Also acknowledged were Mr. A. H. Robinson, Chief, Map Division, Research and Analysis Branch, Office of Strategic Services and the personnel of his Division. The Miller cylindrical projection has been utilized in construction four of the maps in the atlas (plates 3, 7, 20 and 24). These maps were specifically prepared for use in the Army Specialized Training Program in Geography, and were intended to assist the trainee in Terms I and II and in the review and coordination of the fundamental factors presented in Term III which focused on political geography. This type of training material tends not to survive, both because of its non-standard shape and and because it was training material. The involvement of the Office of Strategic Services makes this particular training manual even more important in understanding what was taught in some of the Army's Specialized Training.
