Abstract

A. discusses the history of the United States Army Map Service (AMS) and how its materials, which deal with topographical intelligence (terrain, facilities, and transport networks in enemy territory), became available in library collections. He identifies map collections with high potential as research sources. He concludes by presenting the locations of AMS map collections and working aids for interpreting the material. Emphasis is on World War II German, Japanese, and allied sources. - (SLD)
