Content: This is an Allied Translator and Interpreter Section (ATIS) translation of a Japanese publication captured in July 1944 at an unknown location. This item contains a range of information and charts on the following subjects: road space required by units on the march, loading charts, chemical warfare capacity of mortar units, number of cars required for rail transportation of various units, number of ships required for water transport of various units, number of landing craft necessary to effect a landing in the face of the enemy, the organisation of sharpshooter group, and the marching plans for 2nd Division as prepared by Colonel KUWANA.

These documents are based on handwritten notes from unknown unit(s) and were presumably written in late 1937 or 1938.
