Osprey Elite 80 : The US Navy in World War II

The Pacific war against Japan - America's largest contribution to World War II - was essentially a naval war. It began with a strike against the US Navy and the progress of the struggle between the US and Japanese navies and their air aims governed all other operations. The land battlefields were scattered over vast areas, and other US (and Allied) services depended on the US Navy to carry them and to escort them from one front to the next, to supply them, and to frustrate Japan's parallel operations. The books aim is to cover, in brief, the essentials of the organisation, the types of ships, and their missions during the war. The majority of the text will deals with the men: all types of uniforms (of which there were many, of several different colours, for different duties ashore and abroad, in different parts of the world); and their recruitment, training, crew organisation, duties on board and in battle, as well as pay, food, medical care, leave, shore duties, etc. Female and black personnel, and operational units of the Coast Guard and SeaBees (Construction Battalions) will be included. Text by Mark R. Henry with illustrations by Ramiro Bujeiro.
