United States War Department/
Department of the Army Field Manual Collection

Inventory in Library of Congress General Collections:
Series FM21, FM22, FM23, FM24, FM25, FM26, FM27, FM28, FM29

SCOPE

Military manuals are several series of official publications intended to be instructive and informative. They were produced by all the branches of service, but are generally called Army manuals. Using a phrase which appeared in many, they were “published for the information and guidance of all concerned.”

During the 1940s, military manuals were approved by the Chief of Staff and authenticated by the Adjutant General. Field Manual FM 21-6, List and Index of War Department Publications, is a detailed list of the manuals that were available. Many editions of FM 21-6 were published during the 1940s and can be used to identify manual titles and numbers. The Library of Congress does not have a complete set of FM 21-6. Those editions identified are listed further in this document under the section “INDEXES,” “Field Manual FM 21-6, List and Index of War Department Publications”.

The War Department, which became the Department of the Army in 1947, issued three major classes of publications -- administrative, doctrinal training and organizational, and technical and equipment publications. Administrative publications include publications such as Army Regulations, Special Regulations, Bulletins, Circulars, General and Special Orders, and Pamphlets; doctrinal, training and organizational publications contain Field Manuals, Army Training and Evaluation Programs, Training Circulars, Tables of Organization and Equipment, and Tables of Allowances; and technical and equipment publications include publications such as Technical Manuals, Technical Bulletins, Supply Manuals, etc. The Library of Congress does not have a complete set of these publications, but its holdings are extensive and significant for Field Manuals up until the early 1970s.

This inventory focuses on those War Department and Department of the Army Technical Manuals that were primarily received into the general collections from the1940s to the 1970s. (In the 1970s the Library of Congress ceased receipt of this material.) Because items were not cataloged separately it can be difficult to find the manuals that were received into the Library of Congress collections. Field Manuals volumes were received as serials with the FM number issued as the volume number, under the single Library of Congress classification “U408.3.A13.” The researcher can generally find the individual records by browsing the Library of Congress Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) using the “Call Number Browse (LC Classification No.)” option available under “Basic Search” and browsing “U408.3.A13". In this publication we have not attempted to provide a bibliography of those items that can be easily found in the catalog under their classification.

Because the items do not generally have individual bibliographic records it has been difficult in the past for the researcher interested in locating these older titles to identify what the Library of Congress has available. This finding aid attempts to reveal the depth and breadth of the collection available to the researcher. We will publish the inventory with updated tables as they become available to expose this information to the widest sources as quickly as we can.

Of interest to military historians, curators, military enthusiasts, re-enactors, living historians and collectors, this collection can be used to trace the evolution of the Army’s doctrine, organizational structure, equipment, uniforms, and weapons. The collection is also of interest in terms of the care, maintenance and preservation of military artifacts.

Army manuals include publications on U. S. military technique, tactics, and organization; military and cavalry drill; and historic U. S. military equipment including guns and batteries.

NON-PRINT (MICROFICHE) TECHNICAL MANUALS

Just after World War II, President Truman set up a program to distribute the fruits of government and government-supported research which had been bottled up by war-time secrecy. The Office of the Publication Board was organized to distribute reports and The Bibliography of Scientific and Industrial Reports (BSIR) was issued to announce the reports available. The federal technical reports system and National Technical Information Service has grown out of that effort.

More than 2,000 U. S. Army manuals were listed in BSIR from 1946 into 1949. This finding aid lists those Army manuals and where known gives the alternative PB or other number by which they can be found on microfiche.

For a list of Technical Manuals issued as PB reports please see the excellent compilation, Army Manuals Listed in the Bibliography of Scientific and Industrial Reports, 1946-1949, compiled by Robert L. Bolin, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, available at
http://www.unl.edu/Bolin_resources/bsir/Army%20Manuals%20Listed%20in%20BSIR,%201946-49.htm. External Link

The BSIR itself is available at http://www.unl.edu/Bolin_resources/bsir-xml/. External Link This index lists those Army manuals by manual number and gives references to the citations in BSIR. Appendices also list the manuals by title and by PB-number. Technical Manuals can also be identified in “Government Reports Announcements & Index” and through the “National Technical Information Service” which grew out of the Publication Board.

HOW TO OBTAIN COPIES OF TECHNICAL MANUALS

Library of Congress Interlibrary Loan

Copies of the print manuals listed in this inventory are available from the Library of Congress. However they can be very expensive to reproduce. The best way to obtain manuals is through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Libraries will generally obtain items through this system using the Library of Congress as a library of last resort. Researchers should consult their local, college, or agency library to use Interlibrary Loan.

Photocopies from Microfiche Collections

The early PB-numbered documents are in the Technical Reports & Standards Section of the Science, Technology & Business Division of the Library of Congress as microfiche. Prints from the film are available.

For further information call Duplication Services at (202) 707-5640.

FAX orders to the Library of Congress, Duplication Services at:
   (202) 707-1771

   or mail your orders to:
   Library of Congress
   Duplication Services
   101 Independence Ave., SE
   Washington, DC 20540-4971

You must include the PB number listed in the citation in your order and include other identifying information such as the number, title, and date of the manual you are ordering.

Current payment information can be found at the Duplication Services Products & Pricing page available at //www.loc.gov/duplicationservices/products-pricing/.

Requesting Print Materials On-site at the Library of Congress

Field Manuals (FM) within the Library of Congress collections were classed as the serial title United States. Dept. of the Army.  Training Publication (see bibliographic record below). As such these items do not have catalog records, hence the need for the inventory, but instead are accessed through the Library of Congress Call Number U408.3.A13 with the subseries number and date given as the volume being requested followed by a subseries number and date. For example Mechanized Elements TM 2-10 Apr. 1941 should be requested using TM 2-10 Apr. 1941. As the Library of Congress may have more than one version of a manual the month and date is a very important identifier.

Federal Depository Libraries

Many Army manuals are available in Federal Depository Libraries. The Federal Depository Libraries are libraries around the country to which the Government Printing Office sends copies of documents published by the Federal Government. Most lend documents through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). A listing of Federal Depository Libraries can be found through GPO Access, available at https://catalog.gpo.gov/fdlpdir/FDLPdir.jsp.

Large Army Libraries

The Pentagon Library and the library at the Military History Institute at Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania, have excellent collections of manuals. Both make loans through Interlibrary Loan.
