1914-1918 BATTLEFIELDS OF VERDUN:  This is a two pocket folder that opens up.  In the left half pocket is the table of contents.  Printed on one side and stapled together.  In the right half pocket are 10 maps stapled together.  Each map is 8" X 10".  The Major's name on the front revealed nothing to me when researched.  The Doctors name on the back is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Bertram_Phillips
I don't believe the Doctor and the folder are related....just a place to write his name as a note.  The last page of the contents are sources of the data used and one is dated 1960 so, I believe this folder will date after 1960.
