More About This Textbook

Overview


From the days of oars and coal-fired engines to the computerized era of the twenty-first century, The Bluejacket's Manual has been an essential part of the American Sailor's sea bag for more than one hundred years, serving as an introduction to the Navy for new recruits and as a reference book for Sailors of all ranks. Written by a Sailor whose decades of naval service included sea duty in patrol craft, destroyers, and aircraft carriers as both an officer and a "white hat," this newest edition has been overhauled to reflect the current state of the ever-evolving U.S. Navy, adding such things as camouflage uniforms, new ratings, and the Navy Professional Reading Program.

Primarily intended to serve Bluejackets, this book will also be welcomed by potential recruits, Navy buffs, and a growing number of Bluejacket's Manual collectors.

    Really helpful.

    Im still under DEP and Im pretty sure it would be nice to have an advantage when I go to RTC. Buying this book is one way to have that advantage. As soon as I received this, I feel like reading the whole context of it ( though I know some of them aren't that important YET). Though every future sailor have their own START guide and can search online about what bootcamp and life in the navy would likely be, this is also a good reference - if not the best. Eventhough you will be given this one in RTC, there's nothing wrong in buying it just to be ready for bootcamp. It's like investing for your future. What is 31 bucks for a possible increase in paygrade (it's like $200 a month advantage). The bottomline is I recommend this because it is indeed helpful.
