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 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.

2.0 von 5 Sternen The Best Picture is On The Front 28. Dezember 2013
Von nycsurvivor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I returned this book. I was expecting a bit more from the description and the picture on the front. The photos are interesting, but not nearly as provocative and playful as the one on the cover. It is well done so I hate to only give it two stars, but it was not what I expected.

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...
