For nostalgia nothing in my collection ranks Great Weapons of World War II by John Kirk and Robert Young Jr. It is a mediocrity, an overview survey of various weapons of the period without a whole lot of hard data and a good number of obvious errors, but it is Naval Nostalgia book very first book of my collection.

Clearing out boxes of nautical paperwork I have come across the log book of the German Naval tug "Ostpreussen" 19/4/ to Information about US Navy Ships, Past and Present.

Aircraft Carriers - allowing the mobile projection of Naval Air Power across the globe.: Amphibious Assault Ships - deploy and support U.S. Enjoyed the book immensely. Went through AOCS in (class ) and it brought back a slew of memories. Like others, I laughed, cried and was overwhelmed with nostalgia for those days.

I still feel that AOCS training was the best officer training program in the armed forces- /5(36). Members of the Naval Academy Class of '52 as well as a couple of other graduating classes, have all moved to Willow Valley and get together at least once a month, are pictured at a gathering at.

Getting Our Wings is a non-fiction aviation book filled with pictures, facts, humor, nostalgia, sadness, and honor. Specifically, it is THE NAVAL AVIATION TRAINING story, a non-fiction book about brave men and women spanning our first one hundred years as they learned to fly the Navy way.

The aut 5/5(1). This book is an excellent example of how a exceptional author can make any subject seem fascinating, rather than merely a book for boating enthusiasts, naval historians, or prospective Naval Architects and Marine Engineers/5.

What started out as a couple of pages has grown into a full-blown battle report that covers how the rules work together. Another Vietnam-related work—and one that has captured national attention—is My Father, My Son by former Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Elmo Zumwalt, Jr., and Elmo Zumwalt the moving human interest element of this dual autobiography, the book highlights the naval war in Vietnam from the perspectives of the admiral in charge and one of his swift-boat commanders—who is also.

David Crook – who writes the A WARGAMING ODYSSEY. blog – is designing a naval wargame set in the early twentieth century, and in an exchange of emails we have been discussing the advantages and disadvantages of using a grid of Hexon II hexes for naval wargames something that I have done in the past but in an abstract rather than a realistically scaled way.

FORWARD For those who served aboard at the Fleet Post Office, New York, their naval careers have already been terminated. For others of us, the close of our service to the Navy lies in the near future.

So that the coming years may not dim, too much, the memories of duty at the Fleet Post Office, New York, during World War II, we present this memento. May it bring you many moments of pleasant.Former Naval Academy Museum director Kenneth Hagan and his colleague Grant Walker describe this book as "a paean to the Victorian era, [that] resonates with a tender nostalgia for the warhorses that enforced the last days of the Pax Britannica.".Im sure I read this book a couple of times in junior high in the 60s, and when I saw it at a used book shop recently I just had to pick it up.

Dated and not very challenging, but a quick read, surprisingly informative and a fun piece of nostalgia/5.
