Content: This item is an area diagram and set of instructions for an army unit stationed near Wangmaoshen, in Shanxi Province, China. The first page of the document is a diagram of an army camp explaining barracks arrangements in Wangmaoshen with rooms allocated to troops according to function and rank. Roads leading out of the camp are marked as leading to Wangcunzhen and Yuanqu. The second document contains a report on "battle conditions," and orders for enemy forces to be driven back from the area they have occupied. A diagram is given with orders for troop placement and organisation, and a list of points to be well rehearsed before engagement, such as clear sighting of the territory and ammunition checks. This item was captured at Finschhafen in April 1944.
