B.R.503 GEOGRAPHICAL HANDBOOK SERIES - Naval Intelligence Division. FRANCE -Volume 1. Physical Geography - June 1942 'The purpose of the books is primarily naval. They are designed first to provide, for the use of Commanding Officers, information in a comprehensive and convenient form about countries which they may be called upon to visit, not only in war but in peace time; secondly, to maintain the high standard of education in the Navy and, by supplying officers with material for lectures to naval personnel ashore and afloat, to ensure for all ranks that visits to a new country shall be both interesting and profitable.Their contents are, however, by no means confined to matters of purely naval interest. For many purposes (e.g.history, administration, resources, communications etc.) countries must necessarily be treated as a whole, and no attempt is made to limit their treatment exclusively to coastal zones. It is hoped therefore that the Army, the Royal Air Force, and other Government Departments (many of whom have given assistance in the production of the series) will find these handbooks even more valuable than their predecessors proved to be both during and after the last war.'Hardback with blue cloth covers - covers are a bit battered but body of book is in good condition with tight binding. Map is unfortunately missing from pocket on inside back cover. Sticker on reverse of title page stating ' This volume was produced and printed for official purposes during the war 1939/45'
