Scope and Contents
Scope and Contents
This collection consists of four volumes of 'Survey of Central African Seaports and Air Routes.' The volumes include photographs, charts, and pages of text, gathered during 139 days of travel covering approximately 16,000 miles through Central Africa. The purpose of the survey was to assist the Departments [War? or a department in Pan Am?] in determining what seaports, routes, and services of supply should be established to bring aircraft to the desired war areas most expeditiously, i.e., increase the flow of supplies to the British Eighth Army. At one point there was, according to the preface, a book of charts which was not transferred to NASM.
