D'une présentation très soignée, reliée avec une belle jaquette, ce superbe livre de photographies nous fait partager la vie intime des jeunes américains qui ont combattu pendant la Seconde Guerre Mondiale. Toutes ces photos ont été prises par des correspondants de guerre et versées aux archives, si bien que la plupart nous donnent des renseignements sur la date, le lieu et les personnes prises en photo. Une grande majorité d'images proviennent de la guerre dans le Pacifique, à bord des navires de l'US Navy, des bases d'aviation de l'US Air Force et des centres d'entraînement et de formation aux Etats-Unis, ainsi que des îles du Pacifique servant de point de chute aux Forces américaines. Elles nous font partager la vie à bord, dans les barraques ou dans les camps, avec discrétion dans les chambrées, les foyers, au travail sur le pont ou dans les machines, mais parfois aussi avec un petit côté voyeur qui nous montre tous ces beaux garçons se baignant nus sur les plages ou lavant leurs vêtements dans des points d'eau ou en prenant leur douche. L'arrière-plan de nombreux clichés ne manque pas non plus d'intérêt, nous donnant une idée des forces engagées par les Etats-Unis dans le Pacifique, par exemple sur cette photo montrant plusieurs centaines de soldats se baignant, nus pour la plupart, lors d'une escale sur une île, tandis qu'on aperçoit, non loin, un nombre impressionnant de navires au mouillage, prêts à les emmener à tout moment vers les lieux de combat. "Men Of WWII - Fighting Men At Ease" ("Les combattants au repos") est une superbe machine à remonter le temps.

Another Dip Into The Pool 3 avril 2007

Author Evan Bachner returns two years later with a follow-up to his first book, "At Ease". If you thoroughly enjoyed his first book, as I did, you wont be disappointed. Filled with over 150 photos of sailors and soldiers looking quite peaceful,even though a war raged around them. Being a Navy veteran, I couldn't help but notice how familiar some of these images seem. A perfect companion to the first book.

My partner and I had just watched BAND OF BROTHERS & THE PACIFIC series by HBO ,so we were wondering about the gay feeling aroundethe times of the WWII, so we purchased this book . I was amazed with the pictures that show this brotherhood between them , it almost make you feel uncomfortable not because they are sexual , but because they are so innocent and sweet at times . It's almost sad since you do not know how many of this soldiers made it . You have just this fragment of time put on paper (picture) wich represents that specific moment in time were they were at ease and that the last thing they were thinking is who was going to be killed next or if you were going to see the face of your next victim.

Great Book 5 août 2009

First saw this at a museum gift shop and passed it over because I did not want to carry it around.... The thought of the book stayed with me for about a month, I remembered the impression created by the book- the pictures were taken in many different places, by many different people- by the way the material was assembled and presented is amazing.

Didn't know it would be this... 4 février 2014
Par Richard C. Wedemeyer - Publié sur Amazon.com

I purchased this and other photo books of WWII for my father in law, who loves to learn about that war. This book seemed to be one he might enjoy. However, it is clearly at least mildly homo-erotic photography, and so I gave it to someone else who migh enjoy it more. Lest you think I am in error about my assumptions regarding this book, I will tell you that after ordering this I was deluged with homo-erotic photography book suggestions in my Amazon-generated suggestion lists.... It is interesting in that it depicts fighting men, presumably some of whom are gay, in ways that tells us who they were: men, fighting for our country, who may have happened to be gay. So? Let's get over it, ok? The photos are excellent, and none are in any way pornographic or inappropriate. Many are just guys trying to have a little fun while they wait for their next struggle against their enemies...

Soldiers at Ease: Before the Days of `Don't ask, Don't Tell' 6 novembre 2012
Par Grady Harp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The topic of World War II continues to be a source of films and books and television series as though that war was the last war that suggested the romance of men away from home, fighting for their country's honor, for patriotism etc. Now the multiple wars in which we continue to invest are quite the opposite but the feeling among soldiers isolated from the world remains the same. Yes, there have been some changes in the rules and regs about sexual conduct, but return to the `halcyon days ` of WW II and see how fighting men worked with each other in those moments when not under fire.

Evan Bachner, well known for this book `At Ease' that showed the men of the Navy at play with each other, has created another book dealing with the land forces of WW II. Bachner, 52, the son of a WWII Navy sailor, a photo historian, and Columbia Business School graduate was working at Merrill Lynch and `came across an unusual picture of a naked gunner in the St. Georges Channel by Horace Bristol from WW II's Pacific Theater of operations. That started him on a quest of collecting the picture's of America's greatest generation at ease on Pacific islands, atolls, and ships, as the prepared for gruesome battles with the Japanese. The pictures honor these very ordinary men and heroes in poses that are not the standard war photos of men in the midst of battle. These uncopyrighted photos were actually taken during World War II by the Naval Aviation Photographic Unit that was formed in 1942 by photographer Edward J. Steichen. (The over 400,000 photos are stored at the National Archives in Greenbelt MD). It had six photographers who traveled with the Navy and took pictures of military men training, in combat and in their free time. The photographs appeared in newspapers and magazines during World War II, but most of those published were of men in battle. The 150 portraits and pictures in Bachner's book are the more social ones that were never published in stateside newspapers. Photographers in the WWII unit included Wayne Miller, and Howard Liberman, as well as Victor Jorgensen, Edward Steichen, Horace Bristol, and Barrett Gallagher. The reviews confirm that this book covers masculinity and camaraderie in a raw environment that captures it all on film in an uninhibited way.

There is an obvious physical relationship that is transmitted in the gentlest ways, further proof that men together find the emotional and physical support so needed in the time of isolation from the world. It is to Evan Bachner's credit that he shares this truly sensitive body of work with the public at a time when we all need to understand not only the plight of the men away at war today, but of the common threads of pansexuality that have never been a threat but only a solace in a world infected with prejudice. Grady Harp, November 12
