Книга: The United States Navy; a handbook Автор: Henry Williams Формат: PDF Размер: 21.5 mb Качество: хорошее Язык: English Год издания: 1911 Страниц: 310 IN the course of the author%27s tour of duty in the Navy Department, he was called on frequently to prepare answers to letters requesting information about the Navy. These letters came from all parts and all classes. The widespread interest indicated in this manner, coupled with the absence of a book of general information regarding the Navy designed for general reading, induced him to undertake the preparation of this book. It is intended primarily for the information of persons having some interest in naval affairs but it is not technical. Only subjects of possible general interest have been discussed, and those only so far as they seemed to supply interest. There is at all times a demand on the press for news of the Navy%27s doings. The author frequently has had the privilege of furnishing information and data to newspapermen for use in their paragraphs and has in this way also felt the need for a simple manual or handbook on the Navy. Another inducement for the preparation of the book was the fact that the Navy%27s enlisted men are drawn almost entirely from inland states; many of them previous to their enlistment never saw the ocean. The friends and relatives of these men have had no ready means of satisfying a natural desire to be informed as to the Navy.
