WAR ORIENTATION: Naval Air Training Bases, Pensacola, Fla.

(Pensacola, Fla.): (1945). Folio; [29 pp.] Very good in gilt-decorated blue fabrikoid album with comb binding. There are 22 photographs (with captions) mounted on heavy card stock, a typescript "Foreword" and an issue of "Cadet News Digest" tipped in. From the Foreword: "War Orientation became a part of the Ground Training Program at the Naval Air Training Bases, Pensacola, in May, 1944. If the Aviation Cadet was to become something more than the mere pilot of a plane, it appeared almost essential to underline for him the issues of the war and to stress our objectives.... War Orientation Rooms were set up in the training squadrons and a central War Orientation Room was established on the Naval Air Station." The mounted photographs show aviation cadets in lectures, looking at visual displays, and listening to news broadcasts. Some age-yellowing to photographs. Item #57576
