I bought this at a live auction with two WWII US uniforms. The most recent weapon I see is a M1946 company light machine gun, no AKs or SKSs. The numbers in circles of third pic occur in all pages, with Russian and German translations in glossarys in back. Can't find anything close on net.

looks locally produced. You can probably get a little closer to dating it by chasing down when the APO 403 was the address. Of course that might be from between the end of WW2 and the beginning of zip codes.

PaDanby is right on target. An official document would have a FM or TM ID number. Many local SSOs published this kind of book to support the Soviet Military Orientation course they conducted. I took mine at Ft Devens years ago and have a habdbook much like this one. Not worth much today.
