Battlefield 1 features a unique set of campaign missions called War Stories, which present its WWI events from multiple perspectives. Throughout each War Story, players can find a series of in-game collectibles called Field Manuals. Collecting all 66 Field Manuals in the Battlefield 1 campaign will unlock the “Enough for a Library” achievement/trophy.
Battlefield 1: All War Story Field Manuals
This guide will explain where to find all 66 Field Manuals in the Battlefield 1 campaign War Stories. We have organized the entries by War Story and chapter to make things easier. We have also included two reference images per Field Manual to help illustrate the location of each collectible. Note that the images are placed above the Field Manual description they correspond to. The images show the context for where to find a given Field Manual, along with an image of the Field Manual crate itself.
War Story #1: Through Mud and Blood
The first War Story, Through Mud and Blood, contains 20 Field Manuals total across four chapters.
Over the Top
Field Manual #1 - Start Over the Top by capturing the three capture points in the village. Destroy the field gun crew, then go forward toward a green Weapon Station tent beyond the barricades. Look for a pile of shell casings to the right of the green tent to find the first Field Manual crate.
Field Manual #2 - Continue up the hill toward capture point D. There is a rundown church at the top of the hill that has been turned into a crude hospital. Enter the church and look for rows of hospital cots. On the left wall, look for the Field Manual box in front of two large pots.
Field Manual #3 - Exit the church through its back door, facing capture point D. Make a U-turn around the sandbags on the left. The next Field Manual is found beside a stack of crates and a large wheel.
Field Manual #4 - Proceed to capture Big Willy’s Farm at capture point D. While facing the artillery objective ahead, head towards the house to the south of the D flag. The Field Manual crate is between some barrels at the outer left corner of the house, just ahead of the small wooden footbridge.
Field Manual #5 - From the D flag, proceed up the muddy path on the left that leads toward the next objective. Look for a stationary artillery unit parked on the right side of the path. Just behind the artillery hitch, you’ll find the last Field Manual of this chapter in a crate on the ground.
Fog of War
Field Manual #6 - After crossing the bridge at the start of the Fog of War chapter, continue forward and take out the first enemy encampment. Once Black Bess runs over the barbed wire, walk through the barricade and make a sharp turn up the hill to the right, where you’ll find another Field Manual crate on the ground.
Field Manual #7 - Continue forward until you reach the ruins, and eliminate the hostiles. Drop down into the trench at the front of the ruins, and head toward the light in the back left corner. Look further left to find the Field Manual crate in between several medical cots.
Field Manual #8 - Proceed through the forest until you reach a long metal bridge crossing a gulch. From the start of the bridge, head down one of the side paths to reach the bridge’s underside. Walk toward the opposite end of the bridge. Up the small hill ahead you’ll find a Field Manual crate behind a rock.
Field Manual #9 - Continue along the path to reach the logging outpost. Head up the path on the left and make your way to the concrete bunker on the northwest edge of the ridge. Enter the bunker to find a Field Manual inside, beneath the windows.
Field Manual #10 - This last Field Manual in this chapter is found in the same logging outpost, only this time it’ll be on the far east side of the ridge opposite the first bunker. Follow the train track at the top of the hill to the right, away from the bunker where you found Field Manual #9.
Field Manual #11 - At the beginning of the Breakdown chapter, start by heading down to the small group of houses on the right, just past the first windmill. Pass through the center courtyard where the salvage parts are located, and walk toward the log shack in the far left corner. Open the door on the right to find the first Field Manual of this chapter inside.
Field Manual #12 - From the set of houses where you found the previous collectible, walk downhill toward the windmill just past the patch of white flowers. Enter the windmill and go upstairs to the second floor to find the Field Manual crate beneath a window.
Field Manual #13 - Proceed downhill toward the village. Follow the muddy road entering the village on the right. Go past the first brick building on the left, and look for a second brick building on the left. Pass around the right side and enter the doorway. Go upstairs to the second floor, and turn left to discover the Field Manual behind the covered couch.
Field Manual #14 - Enter the brick building at the front of the village. It will have a large sign that reads “A. Lefeuvre”. Enter the doorway beneath the sign, and head upstairs. On the top floor, look for a crate that contains the Field Manual behind some sheets. Look carefully, because it’s very dark upstairs.
Field Manual #15 - At the front of the village, go past the windmill in the center of town and cross the stone bridge. You should see another windmill in the distance. Once you are on the other side of the bridge, head east past the ruined building and cross the grass field. Continue uphill, passing by a green Weapon Station tent along the way. The last Field Manual of this chapter is found just inside the doorway of the shack ahead.
Steel on Steel
Field Manual #16 - Steel on Steel begins in the same location as the previous chapter, only this time it’s during the day. All the Field Manuals in this chapter are found inside the five windmills. Enter the first windmill to the right, closest to the starting point. Duck under the scaffolding on the ground floor to find the Field Manual crate just to the right inside.
Field Manual #17 - From the starting point of the chapter, follow the dirt road lined with fencing. Enter the windmill on the left, beside the green Weapon Station tent. The Field Manual crate is on the ground level, in the same spot as the previous collectible.
Field Manual #18 - Starting at the main road again, this time veer off toward the windmill on the far right. Collect the Field Manual from the crate on the ground floor once again.
Field Manual #19 - Enter the main village at the base of the hill and follow the cobblestone streets to reach the windmill in the center, just before the stone bridge. Pick up the Field Manual on the entry level.
Field Manual #20 - From the center of the village, cross the short stone bridge and follow the muddy road as it curves to the left. Run across the open field to reach the windmill off in the distance. Enter the doorway on the ground floor to find the last Field Manual crate of this chapter and War Story.
War Story #2 - Friends in High Places
The second War Story contains a total of six Field Manuals. There are five in the Fall from Grace chapter, and only one found near the end of Forte Et Fidele.
Fall from Grace
Field Manual #21 - At the start of Fall From Grace, circle around to the back side of the building closest to you. Go past the shed with the light out front, and follow the dirt road until you spot a wheelbarrow on the right. Open the crate beside the wheelbarrow to collect the first Field Manual in this War Story.
Field Manual #22 - Run across the muddy field and head toward a set of nearby houses. Enter the village encampment, moving past the bonfire and keeping to the right. Look for a shack near the far right corner, and bust open the door to find the next Field Manual inside.
Field Manual #23 - Head northwest and go further into the village. Follow the muddy path toward the moonlight, and look for a medical tent on the right. You’ll find a Field Manual crate next to a chest between two beds.
Field Manual #24 - Keep following the muddy path toward the next encampment adjacent to a series of trenches. Go past the medical tent and up a small set of stairs to the top of the trenches. Continue following the footpath to the right. When you reach the barbed wire, turn left and hop across the trench. Look for a Field Manual crate just past the pool of water.
Field Manual #25 - From the pool of water where you found Field Manual #24, turn around and head toward the spotlight in the north. Drop down into the trenches and look for a staircase leading into the spotlight bunker. Inside the bunker, you’ll find a Field Manual crate beside several boxes.
Forte Et Fidele
Field Manual #26 - Play through the Forte Et Fidele chapter until you receive the new objective to “Seize the Flak Gun,” about halfway through the chapter. Follow the narrow walkway until you reach a roofless section. Keep going along the walkway, and pass around a set of silver cylinders on the right side to find the last Field Manual crate of this War Story.
War Story #3 - Avanti Savoia!
Avanti Savoia, the third War Story in Battlefield 1, contains a total of 10 Field Manuals across two chapters.
O La Vittoria
Field Manual #27 - Start the chapter by capturing the St. Anastasia church. Enter the church and pass through the back exit to the outside. Head up the road to the right, and enter the first building on the left. The Field Manual crate is found inside the building in the back left corner.
Field Manual #28 - From the building behind the church, head south along the dirt road, keeping the objective marker to your right. When the road forks, take the uphill path on the right. Continue uphill, keeping the objective to your right, until you spot a set of stone-lined trenches with log roofing. Defeat the enemies, then look for the Field Manual crate beside several boxes in the trench.
Field Manual #29 - Head up the southwest path on the hill toward the objective marker. Look for a large white rock overlooking the path about halfway up. When you reach this rock, turn left to find a small trench with a wooden roof. Defeat the enemies, and at the end of the trench you’ll find the Field Manual.
Field Manual #30 - Continue uphill toward the objective marker. Enter the concrete bunker to receive the new objective, “Destroy Artillery Gun.” As you enter the room with the artillery gun, immediately turn right to discover Field Manual #30 in the corner.
Field Manual #31 - Continue through the mission to obtain the new objective, “Disable Anti-Aircraft Gun”. Proceed uphill to the objective marker. Just before reaching the objective, turn right and look for the last Field Manual crate of this chapter in front of a wood-roofed shelter.
O Tutti Accoppati
Field Manual #32 - Begin the chapter and complete the first objective. Head south across the trench and look for a lone house. Inside the house, there is a Field Manual crate along the north wall.
Field Manual #33 - After defending the outpost, continue northeast toward the next objective marker in the trenches. Enter the bunker in the trenches to find Matteo’s Unit, as well as the next Field Manual crate in the hallway on the right.
Field Manual #34 - Continue uphill toward the fort in the south. Flank around the west side of the fort, and head up the path on the right. At the top of the path, enter the blue bunker door on the right. Inside you’ll find a weapon cache, as well as a Field Manual crate behind the center wall.
Field Manual #35 - Follow the objective marker and enter the fort. Clear out the enemies. Pass through the main courtyard, and enter the door in the east corner. Go through the room and out the back door leading outside. Just as you exit through this door, turn left to find a Field Manual container on the ground beside two barrels.
Field Manual #36 - Retrieving the last Field Manual in this War Story will be a bit tricky, as it is not inside the normal combat area. Starting at the fort courtyard where you must “Clear the Austrian Horn,” hop over the metal railing and drop down a hole in the center of the courtyard. Continue downstairs into the bunker. As you approach the bunk beds in the left corner, you’ll receive the “Leaving Combat Area” message. Quickly grab the Field Manual from the crate near the last bunk before the timer runs out.
War Story #4 - The Runner
The Runner is the fourth War Story in the Battlefield 1 campaign, and it contains 15 Field Manuals total.
