“Profusely illustrated with dramatic paintings, evocative photographs and informative maps, this book conveys the fascinating history of the U.S. Navy. It tells of the officers and men who fought the battles and created strategies, tracing the progress and expansion of technology and tactics from the early colonial days through the furious combat of World War II at sea against Japan to shielding the nation from the threats of the Cold War and today facing the challenges of the twenty-first century.”

“In 1775, a new congress formed what would evolve into one of the world’s greatest military organizations: the U.S. Navy. NAVY celebrates this, using paintings, photos, and maps to trace the evolution of the Navy during the wars it fought. Both black and white and color illustrations, from photos to artistic representations, make NAVY an excellent survey – and it comes from a military historian who has already written several Navy history books. It’s an excellent choice for any military library and for any general-interest collection seeking an accessible, lively format documenting Navy strengths and evolution.”
