Military Intelligence Manuscript
World War I.
Howard W. Robbins
Patrolling and Scouting is very important work and is a source of a great deal of very valuable information. If good, efficient patrolling and scouting is continually maintained, it is a great protection from surprise, serves to keep up the morale and confidence of our troops, and tends to lower that of the enemies'...In trench warfare, night patrolling only, can be done, except with great risk....In open warfare, it can be done both day and night
Historic manuscript. Robbins has signed the book inside front cover. Journal is filled out in a nice legible script, with precise diagrams and color charts. Much on scouting, rifles, grouping, compass skills, thermometer targets, slopes, telescopic sights, snipers, machine guns, intelligence gathering, duties of a battalion intelligence officer, prisoner examination, understanding the German army, &c. Notebook measures 7 x 9 inches, battered blue soft covers, clean and neat within. Over 80pp. are filled in. One page has an interesting bit of breaking news written at bottom: Bitter fighting in Berlin. The German color identification pages are noteworthy. One-of-a-kind.
