CD: Preliminary Inventory of the Cartographic Records of the American Expeditionary Forces, 1917-21: Record Group 120 - Franklin W. Burch. "Most of the maps in this record group were made, collected, or used at General Headquarters, but there was no single centralized map file. The nature of map files in the AEF was diverse and included stock for distribution, compilation and reproduction files, various operations files maintained for intelligence, and planning purposes, technical and experimental project material, and products of post-Armistice collecting, copying, and compilation work for reports and historical purposes. After being returned to the United States, nearly three decades of military archival, intelligence, and historical arrangement preceded their accessioning by the National Archives…This inventory generally follows the arrangement of the records. American maps are described in twelve primary subgroups and thereunder by organization. Allied and enemy records constitute two primary subgroups, in which the records are described by nation and thereunder by organization. Thereafter, American, Allied, and enemy items have been grouped into series based on the subject matter of the maps.…Appendix I is a glossary of terms used in appendixes II and III, general reference and subject guides to the series of American and foreign maps, the area coverage of which can be determined approximately by the origin of the series. Appendix IV lists foreign topographic and trench map series by area and scale." (1966), 2007, CD, Adobe Acrobat, v6, Graphic Images, PC and Mac, 78 pp . 101-CD4043 ISBN: 0788440438
