Robert E. Wallace (a.); Jeffrey G. Barlow (ed.); William S. Dudley (foreword). During WW2, the U.S. Navy engaged in a massive expansion of its fleet & shore establishment in support of the Allied effort to challenge the Axis powers in Europe, the Middle East, & Asia. A significant but unheralded aspect of this naval buildup was the creation of a successful training org. of immense size & complexity. This memoir offers a unique perspective on the effectiveness of the training program developed to enhance the fleetís antiaircraft defense. The author served from 1942-1944 as an instructor at two antiaircraft training centers before joining the battleship Idaho as the automatic weapons officer, serving through the pivotal battles of Iwo Jima & Okinawa. Illustrated.
