Description

Marvin Whitney began his extensive research for this book in the mid-eighties. He took advantage of archive records in Washington, D.C. and travelled extensively in New York, Pennsylvania, an New England searching out little-known facts. In 1986 Mr. Whitney began to reduce his voluminous notes and sketches to formally written articles about these timepieces, and authored a long-running series, "The Ship's Chronometer," in the Horological Times. This was followed by his popular series, "Military Time". There are 32 chapters which make up this book. The book contains hundreds of photographs and many illustrations and diagrams. This book is probably the most complete compilation on military timepieces to date.
