It is comprised of training manuals, magazines, trench newspapers, novels, poetry, letters, diaries, postcards, scrapbooks, photo albums, slides, sheet music, recordings, videos, maps, and posters from the US, Great Britain, France, Italy, Poland, Russia, and Austria. Sudduth (Thomas Cooper Library, U. of South Carolina) provides an inventory to the collection of items added through August 2004, organized by material type and listing bibliographical information and Library of Congress catalog number. The catalog includes an introduction by Matthew J. Bruccoli, Bruccoli's son, and some facsimiles.
