Men of WW II: fighting men at ease
Evan Bachner, United States. Naval Aviation Photographic Unit, United States. National Archives and Records Service
Abrams, Apr 1, 2007 - History - 160 pages
The long awaited follow up to the original "At Ease" presents 160 new, never before published photographs of WWII Navy men. These photos are not the combat photography were so accustomed to seeing; here are disarmingly winsome and playful pictures of sailors and soldiers at leisure, displaying an innocent affection for each other that is practically unthinkable today. This was a time when men had no reservations about showing their devotion to their comrades through physical contact, and the included photographs are truly snapshots of a lost era. This volume includes photos from the National Archives by Edward J. Steichen, Wayne Miller, Horace Bristol, Victor Jorgensen, Barrett Gallagher, and many others.
