    Piece of History

    A beautiful preserved piece of history. An officers guide written for the naval officers trying to prevent a german invasion of britain during one of Britains most desperate times. Shows interesting medical knowledge in the book that is dated, but interesting to say the least. Teaches interesting leadership skills, in the book. Worth buying for a history buff, but probably not for a current naval officers education. as the things used today in the book your already going to know about, and the things you dont know about are dated and impractical. a great collectors item.
