Pocket Guide to Iran was published in 1943 by U.S. War and Navy Departments for American servicemen in World War II. Thousands of American troops were based in Iran during the war as part of a joint effort with the British to send vital military supplies to Russia, which was defending itself against Hitler's army. Do US troops get similar reading material these days?
One section of the guide was published three years ago (see: Do's and don'ts). But now that US personnel have landed near Bam to help in earthquake relief efforts, it would be interesting to revist the pocket-size guide. Many thanks to Ramin Tabib for sending this guide.
