Kurzbeschreibung

1. April 2007
In the years following World War II, images of comradeship, particularly of men being physically close, largely disappeared from the public record. But, as the stunning photographs from the original "At Ease" attest, ordinary American men in the extraordinary circumstances of World War II were affectionate, winsome and playful - disarmingly innocent in a time of cataclysmic peril. This book provides even more of these rarely-seen photos of enlisted men. Led by photography giant Captain Edward J. Steichen, the U.S. Naval Aviation Photographic Unit was organised during the war to record the daily experiences of Navy men all over the world and provide newspapers and magazines with images to promote the American cause. The unit's photographers, which included Wayne Miller, Horace Bristol, Victor Jorgensen and Barrett Gallagher, took thousands of pictures of soldiers as they relaxed, trained, prepared for the next battle and waited. This book, like the original "At Ease", brings together more than 150 of those photographs, culled from the National Archives, including many that have never before been published. Whereas World War II imagery tends to be dominated by combat photography and monumental depictions of weaponry, these photographs offer a rare, intimate look at the Navy men themselves.

Synopsis

In the years following World War II, images of comradeship, particularly of men being physically close, largely disappeared from the public record. But, as the stunning photographs from the original "At Ease" attest, ordinary American men in the extraordinary circumstances of World War II were affectionate, winsome and playful - disarmingly innocent in a time of cataclysmic peril. This book provides even more of these rarely-seen photos of enlisted men. Led by photography giant Captain Edward J. Steichen, the U.S. Naval Aviation Photographic Unit was organised during the war to record the daily experiences of Navy men all over the world and provide newspapers and magazines with images to promote the American cause. The unit's photographers, which included Wayne Miller, Horace Bristol, Victor Jorgensen and Barrett Gallagher, took thousands of pictures of soldiers as they relaxed, trained, prepared for the next battle and waited. This book, like the original "At Ease", brings together more than 150 of those photographs, culled from the National Archives, including many that have never before been published.

Whereas World War II imagery tends to be dominated by combat photography and monumental depictions of weaponry, these photographs offer a rare, intimate look at the Navy men themselves.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another Dip Into The Pool 3. April 2007
Von J. E. Avey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Author Evan Bachner returns two years later with a follow-up to his first book, "At Ease". If you thoroughly enjoyed his first book, as I did, you wont be disappointed. Filled with over 150 photos of sailors and soldiers looking quite peaceful,even though a war raged around them. Being a Navy veteran, I couldn't help but notice how familiar some of these images seem. A perfect companion to the first book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen WOW 20. Januar 2011
Von J. F. Alvarado - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
My partner and I had just watched BAND OF BROTHERS & THE PACIFIC series by HBO ,so we were wondering about the gay feeling aroundethe times of the WWII, so we purchased this book . I was amazed with the pictures that show this brotherhood between them , it almost make you feel uncomfortable not because they are sexual , but because they are so innocent and sweet at times . It's almost sad since you do not know how many of this soldiers made it . You have just this fragment of time put on paper (picture) wich represents that specific moment in time were they were at ease and that the last thing they were thinking is who was going to be killed next or if you were going to see the face of your next victim.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Soldiers at Ease: Before the Days of `Don't ask, Don't Tell' 6. November 2012
Von Grady Harp - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The topic of World War II continues to be a source of films and books and television series as though that war was the last war that suggested the romance of men away from home, fighting for their country's honor, for patriotism etc. Now the multiple wars in which we continue to invest are quite the opposite but the feeling among soldiers isolated from the world remains the same. Yes, there have been some changes in the rules and regs about sexual conduct, but return to the `halcyon days ` of WW II and see how fighting men worked with each other in those moments when not under fire.

Evan Bachner, well known for this book `At Ease' that showed the men of the Navy at play with each other, has created another book dealing with the land forces of WW II. Bachner, 52, the son of a WWII Navy sailor, a photo historian, and Columbia Business School graduate was working at Merrill Lynch and `came across an unusual picture of a naked gunner in the St. Georges Channel by Horace Bristol from WW II's Pacific Theater of operations. That started him on a quest of collecting the picture's of America's greatest generation at ease on Pacific islands, atolls, and ships, as the prepared for gruesome battles with the Japanese. The pictures honor these very ordinary men and heroes in poses that are not the standard war photos of men in the midst of battle. These uncopyrighted photos were actually taken during World War II by the Naval Aviation Photographic Unit that was formed in 1942 by photographer Edward J. Steichen. (The over 400,000 photos are stored at the National Archives in Greenbelt MD). It had six photographers who traveled with the Navy and took pictures of military men training, in combat and in their free time. The photographs appeared in newspapers and magazines during World War II, but most of those published were of men in battle. The 150 portraits and pictures in Bachner's book are the more social ones that were never published in stateside newspapers. Photographers in the WWII unit included Wayne Miller, and Howard Liberman, as well as Victor Jorgensen, Edward Steichen, Horace Bristol, and Barrett Gallagher. The reviews confirm that this book covers masculinity and camaraderie in a raw environment that captures it all on film in an uninhibited way.

There is an obvious physical relationship that is transmitted in the gentlest ways, further proof that men together find the emotional and physical support so needed in the time of isolation from the world. It is to Evan Bachner's credit that he shares this truly sensitive body of work with the public at a time when we all need to understand not only the plight of the men away at war today, but of the common threads of pansexuality that have never been a threat but only a solace in a world infected with prejudice.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Book 5. August 2009
Von John Henry Haggard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
First saw this at a museum gift shop and passed it over because I did not want to carry it around.... The thought of the book stayed with me for about a month, I remembered the impression created by the book- the pictures were taken in many different places, by many different people- by the way the material was assembled and presented is amazing.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Didn't know it would be this... 4. Februar 2014
Von Richard C. Wedemeyer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I purchased this and other photo books of WWII for my father in law, who loves to learn about that war. This book seemed to be one he might enjoy. However, it is clearly at least mildly homo-erotic photography, and so I gave it to someone else who migh enjoy it more. Lest you think I am in error about my assumptions regarding this book, I will tell you that after ordering this I was deluged with homo-erotic photography book suggestions in my Amazon-generated suggestion lists.... It is interesting in that it depicts fighting men, presumably some of whom are gay, in ways that tells us who they were: men, fighting for our country, who may have happened to be gay. So? Let's get over it, ok? The photos are excellent, and none are in any way pornographic or inappropriate. Many are just guys trying to have a little fun while they wait for their next struggle against their enemies...
