PW-434  Unit history of the 4TH Armored Division.  Good condition overall with some spine repair. $50
PW-433    WWII Women's Army Corps training book. Excellent condition. $75
PW-432  Amazing full set of planning maps and intelligence data for the invasion of Okinawa in 1945. I have never seen this level of detail or quantity of intelligence material before. Includes the bound master plan of their invasion with dozens of large fold out maps. A large folder of Secret marked material, a book on Enemy expected activities and tactics. Almost 30 separate maps, many marked "secret" or "Top Secret" including landing maps and ship to shore views of all nine beach heads by color. Other maps show enemy strong points and the conditions off shore as far as possible obstructions and current conditions. I have had 2 maps from the June 6 invasion of Normandy and 2 maps from the invasion of Iwo Jima. They were sold for $400 each. If this set of plans was for either of those 2 key battles, this treasure trove would top $5000. The level of detail is amazing. I have seen nothing like this to date and do not expect to again. Way to much to show in these photos. This set was brought home by a member of a Secret Radar Unit, inserted 1 day prior to the Invasion of Okinawa paper and orders lot. Includes Top Secret maps and charts for the invasion of Okinawa as well as combat drawings of their unit in  the field and original snapshots of the camouflaged equipment set up. Includes original radar charts showing intercepted Japanese aircraft and resulting kills. Unbelievable time capsule from a rare Spearhead unit. $2795ON HOLD
