Now in a newly updated third edition, U.S.
Navy Seabees: Since Pearl Harbor by historian
and author Jay Kimmel is a seminal and detailed
history of the U.S. Navy's `Seabees,' the
military construction units that played key roles
from their inception just after the attack on
Pearl Harbor, through their often hazardous duty
throughout the battlefields of World War II. By
the end of the war Seabees numbered some 325,000
personnel. The Seabees went on to serve with
distinction in the Korean Conflict, Vietnam War,
Desert Storm, Afghanistan and Iraq as those
emergency, war-time, battlefield crises required
both their construction and fighting skills.
Enhanced will 200 illustrations in a large,
232-page, paperback format, U.S. Navy Seabees:
Since Pearl Harbor is a unique and welcome
addition for personal, academic, and community
library, American Military Studies reference
collection and supplemental reading list.
