Identification of Foreign Armored Vehicles

German, Japanese, Russian, Italian, and French
  • Military Intelligence Basic Field Manual FM 30-42
    • War Department, Washington, D.C., 1941
      • 180 pages
      • 111 photos
      • 101 drawings
This manual, containing illustrations with explanatory data relative to foreign armored vehicles, German, Japanese, Russian, Italian, and French, served as a guide in the identification of these vehicles. The material was secured from many sources and it was the best available at the time but was incomplete and, in many respects, inaccurate. As such it provides a remarkable glimpse of how woefully inadequate American military intelligence was just prior to the country's entry into the war.
