Default Looking for a 1973 copy of FM 8-2

Hello All,
Formally joining the discussion! I am a PhD Candidate working to wrap up my study on the use of negotiation by Marine Corps infantry battalion commanders in Helmand 2008-2013. Former US Army infantry officer with OEF/OIF deployments where I first became interested in the area.

If anyone has the 1973 copy of FM 8-2 please share! I have the 1962, 1967, and 1980 versions digitally and am looking for the 1973 manual to complete a quick survey of the evolution of the manual.

Did you check with the Library at Quantico, maybe go for inter-library loan?
