The Concept of Navy Multiple Duty Assignments

" The fundamental principle in the use of Navy manpower is the concept of one person, on a ship or station, being responsible for the performance of several unrelated duties which occupy his full working time. This total working time is usually in excess of the indus­trial 40 hour week and consists of the following types of assignments:

Battle Stations . The manning of these positions, particularly on men-of-war, is the principal reason for sending both the ship and the man to sea. These duties are most critical from the perspective of the Navy man's basic profession, which is that of a fighting man."

First Edition on CD. If you were able to find and purchase this book it would cost over $100.00. And it is all on one CD. Three Hundred pages of high resolution text with illustrations. This book shows all of the jobs within a rating, as an example the 29 different positions within the Boatswain's Mate Rating including the CB Boatswain's Mate. Learn what a Amphibious Rocket Captain, a Gas King and an Oil King do! These and over one thousand other US Navy job descriptions are detailed with meaty facts accompanying the descriptions. With this book and a few trillion dollars you could form your own Navy. I cannot say enough about the content of this giant volume, it is just a must have for the serious Navy collector or really anyone interested in Naval History. Many of the job descriptions in existed 50 years before this book was printed and still exist today. This giant volume was painstakingly archived and illustrated by the renowned military artist Sarge H. H. Booker II who has had numerous articles published by the American Society of Military Insignia Collectors in their monthly publications over the past 30 years. Many of todays definitive insignia books contain Sarge's illustrations. As with any music CD or DVD this may only be returned if defective for a replacement but I guarantee you will be satisfied.
