    America's Munitions 1917-1918

    America's Munitions 1917-1918, Crowell, Benedict, The Assistant Secretary of War, Director of Munitions.

    This is a bible for anyone who collects or researches US WWI items. What you will find is a very interesting and accurate account of almost everything that the US ordered and accepted into service from April 1917 to November 1918.

    In the various sections you can find the information on factory stampings, numbers of items ordered, numbers of items rejected and the number of items accepted from a specific factory if the information was documented. I have used this book to track down the manufacturer of a 6" trench mortar that we recovered a few years ago in New Jersey. The book is fascinating and while I just purchased my second copy this week (I paid $100 for the first copy in 1997 and I bought a better copy for $30 this time) I'm going to pass the book on to you guys for free (OK, Google Books did all the hard work but hey, I found it!)

    Download it and enjoy!

    Hmmmm, do you have an up to date version of Adobe Acrobat? I can see the Download button on the right so I was assuming everyone else could.

    Try this link and see if it works: http://books.google.com/books/pdf/Am...zsie1hBlIYFaPw

    Eodtek, THANK YOU!! I'm at a FUDS (Formerly Used Defense Site) right now and they fired mostly WW I artillery here, so this will help. Ammotech, Google Books usually wants you to join them but the free stuff is great. There is a bar that says "Get it now" and under that is "Read on my device". Click on "Read on my device" and it will bring you to the device page and download to the device you want. I usually go to the bottom one that is "download a PDF file" and save it on my computer in Adobe then transfer it to my external hard drive. Good luck, Bruce.
