Naval Officer's Guide, 13th Edition
The Naval Officer's Guide, intended primarily for commissioned officers in the U.S. Navy, is also a valuable introduction to the sea services for officers from other uniformed services, the U.S. interagency community, and anyone interested in learning more about the Navy.
Completely revised and updated, this edition reflects recent changes in the organization and policies of the Department of Defense and the Navy. This revision reflects the current Navy operating environment, technological innovations, and the natural evolution of policies, practices, traditions, and social norms. Topics covered include current operational Navy doctrine and policies; career planning and personal records administration; shipboard routine and protocol; the operational and administrative organization of ships and staffs; the organization, missions, and functions of each of the armed services; composition, management and administration of enlisted members; ethics and leadership; communications; and preparation for command at sea. Continuously in print for 75 years, this anniversary edition is the cornerstone of any professional library.
