SUMMARY

From the Battle of Flamborough Head during the American Revolution to the naval air wars over Vietnam & Kuwait, this historical atlas charts the course of the U.S. Navy across its entire history. Laid out here are the frigate duels of the War of 1812, the confrontation of ironclads during the Civil War, the World War II carrier battles in the Pacific, & the amphibious landings in Korea. Depicted also are campaigns, operations, & interwar interventions--like the cruise of the Susquehanna, Perry's mission to Japan, the Cuban Missile Crisis, & Desert Storm--all helping to make this cartographic portrait of the U.S. naval actions understandable at a glance. The maps in this large-format, high quality book are presented in full color & show the deployment of ships, their tracks, & even some shore activity. Each map has facing text that describes the action & its political, economic, & strategic significance. The atlas is organized chronologically into ten eras with each section preceded by a thoughtful essay about that historical period & accompanied by relevant illustrations of ships, battles, & portraits of significant individuals. Winner of the 1996 John Lyman Book Award, this handy & attractive reference will be treasured by everyone who enjoys reading American maritime history. Students, scholars, & old salts alike will appreciate the bird's eye view of how the Navy's fortunes have changed over the years, successfully guarding the nation & securing its interests.Craig L. Symonds is the author of 'The Naval Institute Historical Atlas of the U.S. Navy', published 2013 under ISBN 9781557509840 and ISBN 1557509840.
