|The picture shows the cover and some sample pages of this ©1942 Gum, Inc. "America's Army" Book. The images are great and I wish I could show all of the pages.|
This (70) page book has (65) pages of United States Army images. Below each is some information. The images are from old World War II era bubble gum trading cards. The book is like a set of cards. The card sets that the images are from are believed to be Uncle Sam, Home Defense, and War Gum, and maybe even Horrors of War. There are both color and black & white images. The title page reads as follows:
