Pp (8),[ix]-xv,(7),[5]-620,(2) + 32 pp of plates. 8vo, red cloth spine, blue boards. "To ShiningSea is a landmark work of naval history - the most comprehensive and autho ritative narrative account of American sea power written in recent times. [...] We follow the the first engagements of the tiny Continental Navy; we fight the Barbary pirates; we sail to uncharted areas of the globe; we witness the watershed clash of the Monitor and the Merrimack; we follow, from blueprint to battleship, the development of the U.S. Navy's first modern capital ships and submarines; and we come to appreciate the service's role in the ascendancy of the United States to a global power. Howarth brings us vividly up to date with the painful but ultimately fruitful post-Vietnam reassessment of the Navy's organization and capabilities, and the service's deployment at the onset of the Persian Gulf conflict. Fascinating vignettes of individuals, events, and life afloat in peace and war are drawn from numerous contemporary sources such as logs and journals. Here are campaigns and battles; strategy and tactics; naval design and technology; and visionary admirals and heroic sailors. Through their actions and personalities, plans and politics, they shaped and expanded the world - and transformed a coastalfleet into today's most powerful navy." from the dj. Vg in torn dj. 24.00
