NOTE: This Book is in BETA release: it is only available for download in electronic formats!

Buyers of the current BETA version of this book will receive free access to the updated version, when it is finally published. In the meantime, the book can be very useful to collectors of this era. Many new and corrected entries have been made since the original edition was published in the year 2000. There will be some incomplete and rough spots in this BETA edition, but feedback is always welcome.

Electronic Formats

Since this book was directly created as an electronic book, there are a number of formats available for your purchase. The "ebook" market has not settled down yet, so you have several choices. Note that if you purchase the "printable PDF" electronic version, you may print a single paper copy of this over 500-page book for your personal use. (Do not try to take that PDF file to a "local instant-print" as they will not print a copyrighted book, unless you are the author.) Due to the large size, it is suggested that collectors only print out states or sections that are of current interest. Because as many illustrations in this book as possible are in full color, you may want to print out some pages on a color printer. However, as most computer owners know, printing in color is quite costly, so your decision to print from the Printable PDF depends on your equipment and budget.

About Domestic United States Military Facilities of the First World War 1917-1919, 2nd Edition

This book represents three decades of work, and was first published in 2000. The book I'm offering here is a BETA version of a 2nd Edition of the original book. Many new and corrected entries have been added to the book, as well as many full color illustrations that were not possible in the original edition. Note that buyers of this BETA version will receive the final 2nd Edition as a free download, when it is published.

In this book, I've attempted to list every place in the United States and Territories where soldiers, sailors, or marines might have been stationed during the First World War. The reason for such a list is to provide source locations and checklists for postal history (letters and cards) from these military men. The book lists all fixed, land-based United States military camps and facilities that operated during the War period. There has long been a need for such a listing, as it was not known where military mail could have originated within the US.

The items higher up in this web page contain links that allow you to purchase an electronic copy of this book.
