Texte du rabat

Previous studies of the American Navy's role in World War I have emphasized combat, logistical tasks, and the transportation of military supplies and troops to Europe. While these activities were of crucial importance, the effort that involved the largest number of men was training. In a brief 19 months, the Navy trained over 400,000 men. Besch tells the story of that amazing feat.

Résumé
This story covers the three main divisions of enlisted training in the US Navy during WWI: the training stations, the reserve training camps, and the advanced or specialty schools, as well as an account of the building of the bases and changes in the curriculum.
