Condición del libro: Good
The non-profit-making United Service Organizations have catered for the special needs of America's transient military personnel and their families since 1941. It has provided services ranging from canteen refreshments to an all-star shows, in many parts of the world. This official photographic record is a celebration of 50 years of American history and popular culture, involving entertainers such as Marilyn Monroe, Sammy Davis Jr, John Wayne, James Stewart, Elizabeth Taylor, Danny Kaye and Bob Hope. The book is offered as a tribute and a memorial to the millions whom the USO has served, and to the organization that has served them.From School Library Journal:
YA-- A fine source for students who have an interest in the United Service Organization. The book, primarily photographs, is broken down chronologically from the organization's inception in 1941 to its development in boosting troop morale in Desert Storm. Some text precedes each of the chapters so that readers have a view of the establishment of the USO and its subsequent work. The black-and-white photographs are generally large and of good quality; most depict the actual USO tours, but some are of enlisted men and women and serve to capture the flavor of the times. Notably absent is an index, so this cannot be used as a source on past USO performers. A foreword by Bob Hope, written in a humorous tone, offers a nice touch. --Diane Goheen, Topeka West High School, KS
