The Penguin Handbook of First Aid by A. C. White Knox & J. E. F. Gueritz. PH39, published 1961.

Here are two American wartime Penguins; published by The Infantry Journal in conjunction with Penguin Books USA. Both are Fighting Forces Penguin Specials, Psychology for the Fighting Man and Island Victory, numbered S212 + S240, published 1944. These fascinating titles offer a glimpse at the American Penguin operation in the closing stages of the war. These books were issued to troops on their way to the Pacific theatre. Their compact size was so they could fit comfortably in a soldiers pants pocket. Invariably, copies that do turn up are usually hammered but these two are especially nice examples.
