THE WAVES by Nancy Wilson Ross


Email this review


An excellent survey, amusing, readable, informative, for any young woman who wants the allover picture of the hows and whys and whereases of this women's branch of the U.S. Navy. The factual content is authentic and all-embracing; it is presented with humor and color and anecdotes to give it a human quality. Selection of candidates, procedure of induction, training, specialized services and the training centers where these are taught, the chances for advancement, and so on. An appendix includes such details as personality requirements, procedure for enlistment, examinations, equipment, pay, promotion, rank, equipment, gifts, etc.
