"The Bluejackets Manual," 1946 (13th Edition). Navy bluecloth boards are slightly worn but in good condition. Inside is clean and without notes or underlining. Completely intact including Index, frontispiece, and illustrations. This edition was changed both in content and order of presentation from previous volumes. From the Foreward: "For nearly half a century The Bluejackets' Manual has been a basic training and reference text for hundreds of thousands of Navy men. During these years the book has incorporated the experience of two major wars, and has evolved into an ever more effective volume." This is the basic handbook for United States Navy personnel, first issued in 1902 to teach new recruits about naval procedures and life and offer a reference for active sailors. It has become the "bible" for Navy personnel, providing information about a wide range of navy topics. Size: 5-3/8" x 7-3/4".
