This Handbook was prepared through the joint efforts of personnel of the Photographic Division, Office of the Assistant Chief of Air Staff, Intelligence, A.A.F, and of the Photographic Interpretation Center, Air Intelligence Group, Division of Naval Intelligence, Office of the Chief of Naval Operations, Navy Department. It is intended for use as a reference manual by both Army and Navy interpreters in the theaters of operation, and replaces (for Navy use) the Photographic Interpretation Handbook' published by the Photographic Interpretation Center, Naval Air Station, Anacostia, D.C. Attention has been directed to the type of information and reference material not readily available in forward areas. The training of inexperienced interpreters has not been considered as a primary objective in this publication. The Handbook is made in looseleaf form so that obsolete material may be easily removed and supplements added as new information and procedures are prepared and distributed.
