Editorial Reviews

.,." historians will welcome the efforts of Professors Coletta and Bauer who organized and shared in the work of more than 35 scholars who contribued entries to the volumes.... These accounts provide an informative historical summary of all significant bases, except for small temporary support establishments, operated by the Navy and Marine Corps throughout their existence. Full coverage is included of air stations, aviation research and development facilities, and other installations of special interest to aerospace historians. Each entry is accompanied by detailed bibliographies identifying sources that can be consulted for further details. There is extensive cross-referencing within the text ... [and] detailed subject and name indexes. Frank Uhlig, editor of the Naval War College Press, contributes perceptive introductions to both volumes that place the evolution and overall structure of Naval and Marine bases in their historical perspective.... These dictionaries are indispensable reference volumes for all students of Naval and Marine Corps history."-Aerospace Historian
