About my libraryI plan on working for the Naval Historical Center, I think my library reflects that. I have a interest in World War Two aviation training bases as well.

Hopefully, now that you are graduating, you will now have more time for non-educational reading!
I have uploaded a cover for Sailors and Scholars: The Centennial History of the U.S. Naval War College by John B. Hattendorf, B. Mitchell Simpson III, and John R. Wadleigh.

I just finished "Journey to the Missouri" and it blew my mind. I can't find very many other people who read it. Absolutely fascinating to be transported to the inner discussions of high ranking Japanese military figures in critical periods in WWII.

What did you think of it? Know anyone else who read it?

I just saw your query about Bywater's 'Searchlight on the Navy'. It largely covers the Royal Navy, stressing it's importance even in light of advances in aviation. There are short chapters on the Pacific and on the other European fleets. The Pacific chapter is actually written in the main by Captain W. H. Thring - formerly of the Australian Naval Staff during WW1.
Friedman's book has only joined the 'to-read' pile. I'm a couple of years behind. Sorry.
