PW-660  Rare WWII U.S. War Dept. Malaria Book Illustrated by Theodor Geisel (Dr. Suess)
 this vintage World War II instructional booklet for soldiers on how to keep from getting malaria. Put out by the War Department in 1943 and published in 1944, the 30 page booklet was the product of Theodor Seuss Geisel - better known to most of us as Dr. Suess. Geisel worked drawing posters for the Treasury Dept. and the War Production board. In 1943, he joined the Army as a Captain and was commander of the Animation Department of the First Motion Picture Unit of the United States Army Air Forces. There he wrote films, including training films, and booklets such as this one. Although the drawings and writings in this booklet, don't have his name on them, one look tells you it is early, classic Dr. Suess. The booklet's covers have some age discoloration and some  writing and paper residue on the back. It must have been in a scrapbook. There is rust around the staple area and a small tear at the bottom of the spine. The spine area is where the little booklet shows the most wear. The inside pages are in good condition. The booklet measures approximately 4 1/4" x 5 1/4". These have sold for up to $500 on ebay. Price reflects condition of the rear cover. $225$SOLD$

The battle for the island of Okinawa by United States Marine and Army forces against the Imperial Japanese Army.[21] The initial invasion of Okinawa on April 1, 1945, was the largest amphibious assault in the Pacific Theater of World War II.
   The 98-day battle lasted from March 26th until July 2nd, 1945. After a long campaign of island hopping, the Allies were planning to use Kadena Air Base on the large island of Okinawa as a base for Operation Downfall, the planned invasion of the Japanese home islands, 340 mi (550 km) away. The battle was one of the bloodiest in the Pacific, with approximately 160,000 casualties on both sides: at least 75,000 Allied and 84,127,000 Japanese.
