San Diego's Navy: An Illustrated History
"This illustrated book presents the intriguing story of how the Navy slowly came to appreciate San Diego's attributes and then took bold action to consolidate its position there. Highlighting these pages is a parade of rousing personalities that include plucky congressmen, local officials, naval officers, activists, and other colorful San Diegans. Such a discerning history provides a sweeping and long overdue view of the city and its naval bases that have influenced the lives of thousands of Americans."--BOOK JACKET.
