Reader Comments:U.S. NAVY SEABEES: Since Pearl Harbor, 3rd Edition

“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.”
