Description

Volume Three in the series, this book is a detailed examination of the uniforms and equipment used by elite and specialty units of the American Navy during World War II. Collectors and history scholars will marvel at the array of previously unpublished text and imagery covering such elusive subjects as pre-war landing parties, the Seabees, Naval Beach Battalions, Naval Combat Demolition Units and Underwater Demolition Teams. Obscure and little known specialties are also highlighted including Scouts and Raiders, Beach Jumpers, Shore Fire Control Parties, Hard-Hat Salvage Divers and more. Hundreds of rare and exceptional artifacts are showcased in addition to complete original uniforms modeled in realistic settings with accurate descriptions of their wartime use. Condensed unit histories of the Seabee battalions, beach battalions, UDT teams and NCDU teams are also cataloged for the first time in one volume.
