Once the gunfire of WWI had died away, many American soldiers remaining in Europe under the occupation force found themselves with free time for leisure and recreation. To help them enjoy Paris to the utmost (and keep them out of trouble) the American Red Cross published this small book containing four fold out maps.

Each map represents a different “theme” within the ancient city’s center; Some Paris Theaters, Some Paris Restaurants, Artistic Paris, and Some Paris Shops. Accompanying each map is a list of common words and phonetic pronunciations, along with an index of locations.
