40 BACNHER, Evan At Ease : Navy Men of World War II. First Edition in dustjacket
Harry N. Abrams, New York , 2004, ISBN:0810948052 
BACNHER, Evan. At Ease : Navy Men of World War II. (New York) : Harry N. Abrams, Inc., Publishers, (2004). First Printing. Pp (4),5-160. 4to, blue boards, with lighter blue lettering. A large-format photography book. "In the years following World War II, images of comradeship, particularly of men being physically close, largely disappeared from the public record. But, as these stunning photographs attest, ordinary American men in the extraordinary circumstances of World War II were affectionate, winsome, and playful-disarmingly innocent in a time of cataclysmic peril. Led by photography giant Captain Edward J. Steichen, the U.S. Naval Aviation Photographic Unit was organized during the war to record the daily experiences of Navy men all over the world and provide newspapers and magazines with images to promote theAmerican cause. The Unit's photographers, who included Wayne Miller, Horac e Bristol, Victor Jorgensen, and Barrett Gallagher, among others, took thousands of pictures to document the lives of soldiers as they relaxed, trained, went about their lives, prepared for the next battle, and waited. When the tension of battle was over or yet to come, these photographers captured the moments when troops left behind their responsibilities as men for a little while and became boys again: roughhousing, wrestling, lounging, and showing off. This book brings together a selection of more than 150 of those [black & white] photographs, culled from the Still Pictures Branch of the National Archives, including many that have never before been published. While World War II imagery tends to be dominated by combat photography and monumental depictions of mechanized weaponry, these photographs offer a rare, intimate look at the Navy men themselves." - from the dj.
