About this Collection

The Newsmaps were published by the Special Service Division, Army Service Forces, War Department of the U.S. and were prepared and distributed by the Army Orientation Course during the World War II era. They usually feature maps displaying the theaters of conflict, and often include narrative descriptions of war-related events. Some feature photographic essays or poster-like designs on themes such as enemy insignias, demobilization, and farm loans.
