Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
This collection brings together more than 150 photographs culled from the National Archives, including many that have never before been published. Whereas World War II imagery tends to be dominated by combat photography, these photographs offer a rare, intimate look at the Navy men themselves.
Main Description
As these stunning photographs attest, ordinary American men in the extraordinary circumstances of World War II were affectionate, winsome, and playful--disarmingly innocent in a time of cataclysmic peril.
