War Department Field Manual FM 30-30, published by the War Department, April 1 1943. Unnumbered pages, card stock covers, 6 by 10 inches and about 1/2 of an inch thick. The manual provides text, diagrams, and multiple photographs of the combat aircraft of the major warring nations, specifically, the United States Army and Navy, the United Kingdom, the Third Reich, Japan, and Italy. There is a section for the aircraft of the Soviet Union but it does not contain any pages. Very good condition.
