o HOPISTA*, MOM, ARKANSAS PAGE FIVI WHATEVER HAPPENS IT'S IN THIS BOOK! Complete strategy mop, of every front-some in color-together with first-hand background by experts of The Associated Press at home and abroad. NOTHING ELSE IS AVAILABLE LIKE IT AN ATLAS OF WAR It is no ordinary map that interests 60,000,000 readers in the United States every week, as well as millions more in Canada. Such popularity is commanded only by the Background Maps of Wide World Features, the great affiliate O f The Associated Press. They are the most complete, up-to-date graphic strategy maps of the world's war fronts issued anywhere in America today. So popular have they become that readers have asked for them in a special book. That book is now available—16 full pages, some in color, mapping every arena of war. But it is no mere reprint of the weekly maps you see in this paper. Every map has been especially designed for this book by the same expert map staffs that produce the weekly background maps. Every page has been prepared for every eventuality. Wide V/orld War Book is your permanent guide to the course of the war. And it is an authoritative guide, including background in picture and story, in addition to the maps, supplied by leading experts of The Associated Press at home and abroad. Only The Associated Press and Wide World Features with unparalleled facilities all over the world could produce anything like the Wide World War Book. There is drama behind its production—behind the production of the weekly Background Maps. Two staffs are primarily responsible for the weekly maps—experts in Washington and in New York. In Washington map researchers, close to the source of strategic information, supply the background for these maps. In New York another staff of experts—the artists draw the maps. Sometimes a finished map is discarded at the last minute to meet some sensational new news development. When that happens Washington swings into action, New York swings into action, and a brand new background map is ready on deadline. Just as often these maps are ahead of the news, anticipate big events. Detailed maps of the Russian front showing where Hitler would strike were in editors' hands the morning Hitler struck! The experience of all this has gone into your Wide World War Book which this paper will print^on February 14. The book covers every area of the globe, shows the broad general strategy of these zones. There are detailed maps on Hawaii, the Panama Canal, and Alaska, three keys to the Pacific; a full page of the Pacific as the admrials see it, a full page of the treasure islands—Dutch East Indies; a full page on the Asiatic frontier, showing just how an allied offensive would likely be sprung; maps of Singapore, Australia, the Atlantic battle zone, Europe, the Mediterranean and its three iron doors—Gibraltar, Suez and the Dardanelles; the Russian front, the Mid- east (Arabian nightmare), a view of the world from the poles and finally, a full two-page spread of the entire world showing how Uncle Sam delivers the goods over seven seas in the struggle to crush the Axis. No other map book is available like this. IOc a Copy—Buy Through Your Star Carrier, the Newsstands, or at HOPE STAR An Associated Press-Wide World Newspaper O IMP '' '1 n ?rtj ( 1 .3
