Stars and Stripes’ G.I. Stories

Near the end of WW2, Stars and Stripes published a series of “G.I. Stories” of the Ground, Air, and Service Forces in the European Theater of Operations. Each booklet was approximately 32 pages in length and small enough to fit in a uniform pocket and to conveniently mail home. Each booklet included a color centerfold usually with a map of the unit’s operations or a photo montage. Inside the covers were a page for soldiers to record their personal information, and a page for autographs. Some booklets are labeled as issued by the “Orientation Section, Information and Education Division, ETOUSA”, while others are labeled as issued by “Stars and Stripes, a publication of the Information and Education Division, Special and Information Services ETOUSA.”
