The Allied Translator and Interpreter Section (ATIS) listened to, read, and translated for headquarters every Japanese source of value to the war effort. As a military intelligence unit, it also prepared summaries and analyses for General Douglas MacArthur's Southwest Pacific Area headquarters.
Now for the first time a comprehensive set of these valuable ATIS translations and reports is available on compact, durable microfiche. The documents range from secret, high-level Japanese plans to the private and personal observations of the average soldier. Included are revealing statistics, maps, sketches, lectures, orders, and more.
