Washington: Infantry Journal, (1943). First Edition. Black & white photographs, illustrations. Paperback. Octavo. 103 pages. Very Good. Bound in gray paper covers over sewn binding, front cover printed in black and red. Minor edge rubs along joints and spine.

Fitness program developed by women for women. The Foreword recognizes that "American women are not amazons and don't want to be amazons," so the goal here is building the strength, stamina, and coordination to support a total war in non-combat positions. In addition to sections on exercises, health rules, and body conditioning there is coverage of the care and styling of the hair, care of the skin, cosmetics, posture, etc. Elizabeth Arden is acknowledged for her help with the material on appearance. Photographs by Alfred Eisenstaedt and Gjon Mili.
