by James E. Wise, Jr., and Paul W. Wilderson III

Annapolis: Naval Institute Press, 1999. Pp. x, 246. Illus., append., biblio., index. $29.95. ISBN:1-55750-949-2

These amusing and often highly informative volumes make very suitable reading for the military historian, as well as for the layman and younger folks who may have an interest in military history. Aside from the coverage of the frequently interesting contributions of the men involved, there are appendices that deal with role of women who were not necessarily in the service (including the very important contribution of Hedy Lamar to naval communications), a look at some men who didn’t serve, and more.
