44 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.

45 BACNHER, Evan. Men of WWII : Fighting Men at Ease. First Edition in dustjacket

BACNHER, Evan. Men of WWII : Fighting Men at Ease. (New York) : Harry N. Abrams, Inc., Publishers, (2007). First Printing. Pp (4),5-160. 4to, blue boards, with lighter blue lettering. A large-format photography book. "During the Second World War, the Naval Aviation Photographic Unit vividly capturedthe ordinary lives of soldiers during extraordinary circumstances, produci ng thousands of professional-quality photographs. These photographs reveal the human side of the war: the enlisted men are at turns playful, bored, relaxed, or on edge. In this follow-up to the revelatory 'At Ease', Evan Bachner once again culls the best images from the National Archives to illuminate these men at war. As in 'At Ease', the high level of artistry and composition in the photos is striking, due to the experience and craft of the menbehind the camera. The Naval Aviation Photographic Unit, formed to provide images for patriotic publications, was led by Edward Steichen, a master ph otographer. His team included such photography luminaries as Horace Bristol, Wayne Miller, Charles Fenno Jacobs, and Victor Jorgensen. In addition, this volume includes photographs from the Marine's, Army Air Corps, and Army collections, which have a style that is less polished but more intimate andcompelling. This book, which inclucldes many never-before- published image s, captures the servicemen in their daily routines—living in a war, but so often at rest or at play. Featuring more than 150 [black & white] photographs, from the Still Pictures branch of the National Archives, 'Men of WWII' focuses on the quieter and more personal side of the war. Rather than highlighting violent, iconic war imagery, these photographs bring a sense of humanity to the conflict that has shaped the modern world" - from the dj.

"This is the first study in Russian or Western literature of the rise and fall of Russian naval influence in the North Pacific Ocean from the time of Peter the Great to Tsar Nicholas I. The author deals with a neglected area: inherent tension between Russian naval and mercantile interests and the origins of international rivalry in the North Pacific at large. Barratt shows that Russia's motives for early expeditions to the Pacific were to promote science, exploration, and trade. But when imperialist powers vied for territory and resources in the area, military confrontation became a possibility. Rivalries within Russia, aidgovernment caution curbed the build-up of any effective counterforce and d ealt the final blow to Russia's naval ambtions. Her hopes for hegemony in the North Pacific and in Russian North America collapsed in 1825, marling the end of an enlerprising era for the Russian navy in Pacific waters. The navy learned from these early experiences that it was incapable of a 'great power' roie in the Pacific without an independent, self-sufficient, Pacific-based fleet." - from the dj. 1.
