US Navy History and Tradition: 1772-1778US Navy History and Tradition: 1782-1817US Navy History and Tradition: 1817-1861US Navy History and Tradition: 1861-1865US Navy History and Tradition: 1865-1936US Navy History and Tradition: 1940-1945These six pages contain 136 scans from the US Government pamphlet series Navy History and Tradition. It was published in the late 1950's and early 1960's by the Stokes Walesby Co., and was given away free at US Navy recruiting offices. While the prose is as dismal as one would expect from a propaganda comic book, the art is exceptional. Famed graphic artist Fred Freeman paid great care to historical accuracy and detail in its drafting. While the narration, by writers Theodore Roscoe and Stokes Walesby, does not match the art in either inspiration nor accuracy, the dates can be relied upon and the illustrations really deserve a look. HINT: Wait for the page to load completely before deleting the annoying little pop-up and side boxes; the price one pays for a 'free' web site.
