ARMY TALK by Col. Elbridge Colby



Pub Date: Feb. 23rd, 1941
Publisher: Princeton

Army language is a growth of years, and many of the terms new to youth today, root back to earlier wars, stemming from recognizable sources, colloquial, regional in varied adaptations and uses. This is no attempt at a technical military dictionary, simply a book of army slang, common talk, technical jargon in daily use -- and the definitions, origins, abbreviations -- and varied applications fascinating to those interested in the American language.
