Britain and World War II: A Chronology, Volume I, September 1939 - December 1940

New York: British Information Services, 1945. Pamphlet. This pamphlet contains a chronology of the Second World War from September 1939 to December 1940. Published in May, 1945, likely just after VE Day (8 May), this was the first in a series covering the whole war. Condition of this 21 page wire-stitched pamphlet in self-wrappers is very good. The paper is crisp and bright and the staples are bright and free of corrosion. There is some minor soiling and handling wear to the covers. The publisher, British Information Services (BIS), was the information department of the British Consulate in New York. The agency produced dozens of pamphlets, leaflets, posters, and other pieces of propaganda to distribute in America with the intent to "reveal the political determination of the British government to bring the inspiration and steadfastness of the prime minister and the British nation to an American nation not yet engaged in the war.” (Cohen, Volume I, p.513) Although Churchill would secure significant American material aid and forge a vital bond with President Roosevelt, America would not formally enter the war until after the 7 December 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
