(S.l.): [Printed by 29th Engineers, U.S. Army], 1918. Stapled wrappers. Octavo. 16 pages. Near fine. Printed paper covers, saddle-stapled binding. Some minor cover soil, a few edge wrinkles, darkening to first and last pages from contact with covers, and some oxidization darkening around binding staples.

This interesting pamphlet contains translations of several captured German documents from the Ludendorff Offensive on the Western Front in World War I, showing how the Germans were dealing with airplane and gas attacks. The first document shows what they learned and how they would adjust for future battles. Prepared for and distributed to regimental and battalion commanders of the A. E. F.

"Lieut. Howard Caulkins" penned at top edge of front cover in a contemporaneous hand, with "Received / 24 Aug 1918 / 1st Corps Schools" stamped at lower fore corner of front cover.
