    Picked it up from someone obviously cleaning out the attic. The pages are crisp, clean, with no water damage. the Cover is still bright, with a small crease and nick in the middle (i'm assuming where something was sitting on it in the old war chest. No writing to speak of except what appears to be the original owner's name.

    This book contains not only the Infantry Drill Regulations, but:
    "Rifle Caliber .30, M1, Garand Rifle"
    "Infantry Pack and Equipment"
    "Military Discipline and Courtesy"
    And
    "Interior Guard Duty"

    5 manuals in one.

    In my research I found very little on this book, as far as origins. My best guess is it was a book you could buy post-training in the military shops, probably as a replacement, or meant for officers.
    This is not a reproduction, as the only dates within the book are from 1938/1939 for the Drill Regulations, and "3rd Printing, 1941" for the additional manuals. Which contain original WWII era photos, drawings, and pictorals.

    This would be an awesome addition to any collectors bookshelf. If for the M1 Garand Section alone.

    Since you included that statement I'm going to call you on it. Please show me where it is selling for $100?

    Unfortunately I just searched for an hour looking for those auctions and I can't find them. It was when I first picked up the book about a year ago, found the little info I could on it and auctions at 2 sites, 1 for $80, 1 for like, $107. I'll remove the reference.

    Are you interested in a trade for ammo cans?
    I have nice 30 cal. and 50 cal. cans available.
