Recognition Manual US Naval Vessels ONI 54


Here is an authentic WWII-era recognition manual (ONI Series 54) of US Naval Vessels published by the Office of Naval Intelligence in 1943. Inside are diagrams, photos, dimensions, and recognition notes for what appears to have been all US Naval and Coast Guard vessels in service at that time, including battleships, aircraft carriers, cruisers, destroyers, mine layers, submarines, landing craft, auxilliaries, and more.  

This is a tremendous reference for anyone interested in US Navy craft of the era. Measures ~10 inches wide and ~6 inches tall and ~1 inch thick.  The extra wide front and back cover shows creases and tears at the unbound ends, but the pages inside appear intact and in good shape.
