My Grandfather served in the 41st NCB (Naval Construction Battalion) during World War II and my father served in the Navy during Vietnam. So my interest in the U.S. Navy and the Construction Battalions are familial. The book was written in layman's terms and although the writer does not seem professional, he does a great job and gives accurate history of the Construction Battalions (CB's = Seabees) of World War II. It is not an exhaustive history, but a very interesting and enjoyable book.

Since my Dad was a Seabee and never talked to us about his service, I was very curious to understand just what his responsibilites were. I was amazed. I had no idea how influential the Seabees were to the war effort, nor that my father was actually in danger on the islands of the Pacific. Fascinating read for anyone interested in what the Seabees contributed to the success of the war, which was plenty!!

A highly interesting history of a vital part of U.S. armed forces in WW2: the Construction Battalions, or CB's (Seabees). Covers their origin, activities in both the Pacific and European theatres, and post-war projects up to the early 1960's.
