April - December 1946 Cruise Book
A great part of naval history.
You would be purchasing an
exact copy of the USS Houston CL 81 cruise book in 1946. Each page has been placed on a CD for years of enjoyable
computer viewing. The CD comes in a plastic sleeve with a custom label. Every page has been enhanced and
