Illustrated History of Seaplanes and Flying Boats
Casey, Louis & Batchelor, John
Hamlyn  1980 
 Hardcover 128 well-illustrated pp, one kilo to post. Long before the concept of the aircraft runway was realised, those aircraft which forged original air routes around the globe had no option but to land on water. The very first aircraft to take off from water, however, did so as early as 1910 in France after which the idea spread and it was not long before a variety of hull designs appeared throughout the world. In this work, we find a fascinating history of the Seaplane and the larger variety which became known as Flying Boats. In addition we learn of the progress in design brought about by the Schneider Trophy races in addition to that shown by the military with recoverable spotter planes being used long before the advent of the Aircraft Carrier.  Very Good/Very Good

Anatomy of a Naval Disaster: The 1746 French Expedition to North America
Pritchard, James
McGill Queen's University Press Canada 1995 
 Hardcover 322 pp, 900g packed for post. This is an account of one of the most ambitious and catastrophic French naval expeditions in the 18th century, resulting in the deaths of up to 8000 men. It exposes the ambitions and frailties of men, the arbitrariness of success, and the limits of power in the 18th century. Intended as a riposte to the Anglo-American capture of Loisbourg in 1745, the so-called d'Enville expedition set out from France the following year to secure Canada, recapture Acadia and Louisbourg, and ravage the New England coast as far south as Boston. Many of the 64 French vessels involved did not return and estimates of the dead reached as high as 8000, yet the enemy was never met in battle. James Pritchard's account of this naval fiasco sheds new light on the extent of the tragedy and raises questions about the role and effectiveness of naval power during the intercolonial wars of the mid-18th century. Pritchard describes the domestic and international political circumstances in France that gave rise to the expedition, outlining strategy and politics in the context of colonial defence and continental ambition. He reconstructs the events that contributed to the failure of the expedition: human and institutional weakness, weather, spoiled provisions, disease and the death of the commanding admiral.  Excellent/Very Good/Very Good

Submarine's operations in the North Sea & Sea of Marmora based on the diary of her commander 1914-15. A very apt book in the light of attempts to plan for the return of Australia's small sub from the seabed (I believe a figure of 20 million was an estimate) Contents >> E7 had a short career in World War I. She took part in the Second Heligoland Bight Patrol along with E5, D2 and D3. She and the other submarines returned from the patrol on 18 August 1914. Then on 30 June 1915, E7 began a 24-day patrol in the Sea of Marmara. She succeeded in sinking 13 ships and damaging many more. The German Submarine UB-14 was in port of Chanak to await repairs. While there on 4 September, word came of the British submarine E7 entangled in Turkish antisubmarine nets off Nagara Point. The U-Boat's commander, Oberleutnant zur See Heino von Heimburg, Prince Heinrich of Prussia, and UB-14's cook, a man by the name of Herzig, set out in a rowboat to observe the Turkish attempts to destroy E7. . . . buy the book & find out what was next.  Very Good/Very Good

The Silent Service The Inside Story of the Royal Navy’s Submarine Heroes
Parker, John
Headline UK 2001 
 Hardcover One of the great untold stories of the British services is that of the Royal Navy Submarine Service, which entered the fray of World War I with 100 underwater craft. Through World War II, where submariners' prospects of returning safely from a mission were only 50:50, the Falklands conflict, and the sinking of the Belgrano, to modern-day elite machines, the Silent Service has played an enormous part in British defense. The author's in-depth investigation is very much personality-led, with diaries from the early part of the century and substantial first-person testimony from survivors of wartime heroics. 294pp with 3 photo sections amidships, 750g carded packed for post.  Excellent/Excellent

Men of War: Courage Under Fire in the Nineteenth-century Navy
Crane, David
Harper Press UK 2009 
 Hardcover Men of War: Courage Under Fire in the Nineteenth-century Navy by David Crane is 480pp, 2 picture sections, 800g to post. Crane offers a unique portrait of the Royal Navy (through the lives of 3 sailors) at a time when it held unchallenged dominion over the world's oceans. reviewer says > A superbly researched work, this utilises contemporary accounts, private letters and official navy to look at the careers of three officers. The first, Frank Abney Hastings, is perhaps the most interesting, for, in the search for glory, action and battle after being sacked in disgrace over a row with superiors, he ended up commanding a steam ship in the defence of Greece - a strange end for a Royal Navy officer. The author builds a powerful case that Hastings transformed sea warfare in the age - his success in the hitherto untested steam boat, using the latest in firepower made the world sit up and take note. Prime Minister Robert Peel's son William and his glittering career had its defining moments on land, although he was a naval man, taking part in the horror of the Crimean war and tackling the Indian mutiny. In a book, ostensibly purely concerned with courage, James Goodenough is the joker in the pack, but knowing the original title makes his inclusion more logical. It was Goodenough who really tried to put into effect an `Empire with a conscience' policy, battling with authority for what he perceived as indigenous peoples' rights, only to die at the height of his powers, ironically from a native's poisoned arrow. All three represent the navy at its best - independence of thought, a strong sense of duty and incredible bravery under fire. The navy, of course represented Britain around the world, and by the time of Goodenough, the author shows it was beginning to recognise its moral as well as military roles. A cracking read about a fascinating time in history.   Excellent/Very Good/Very Good

Captain Bligh and Mr Christian: The Men and the Mutiny
Hough, Richard
E.p. Dutton & Co. Inc, New York USA 1973 1st
 Hardcover 320pp, mapped endpapers & more than 500g to post. The Bounty set out in 1788 to transport breadfruit from Tahiti to the West Indies as a cheap source of food for slaves. But the combination of the tough discipline of Bligh and the attractions of life in the South Sea Islands drove Fletcher Christian and part of the crew to mutiny, and Bligh along with those loyal to him were set adrift in the ship's launch. Their remarkable 3,600-mile, open-boat voyage to Timor is one of the great feats of navigation, while the story of the mutineers' discovery of the uninhabited island of Pitcairn and their attempt to fashion a community away from the pursuing ships of the Royal Navy is as tense as it is horrific. This drama of mutiny, courage, remarkable voyages, human deceit and treachery, first published in 1972, provides an account of this episode of maritime history.  Very Good/Good/No Jacket

 Hardcover Richard Thomas Le Gallienne (1866-1947) was an English man of letters, very much associated with the literary world of London in the 1890s. First published in 1918, Pieces of Eight is a work of fiction that purports to be "the authentic narrative of a treasure discovered in the Bahama Islands in 1903." According to one early reviewer, it is "A polite treasure hunt which, compared to R L Stevenson's handling of the same plot lacks the thrills of real buccaneering, but which is romantic and beautifully descriptive of the tropic Bahamas." 256 crisp pp, gift inscription 1st p, unclipped dj  Very Good/Good

Find ’Em, Chase ’Em, Sink ’Em: The Mysterious Loss of the WWII Submarine USS Gudgeon
Ostlund, Mike
Lyons Press USA 2012 
 Softcover 524pp including a photo section, 800g for post, faults? v. small corner crease. In April 1944, the highly decorated submarine USS Gudgeon slipped beneath the waves in one of the most dangerous patrol areas in the most dangerous military service during World War II. Neither the Gudgeon nor the crew were ever seen again. Author Mike Ostlund's "Uncle Bill" was aboard the ship as a lieutenant junior grade. Through extensive research of patrol reports in U.S. and Japanese naval archives, interviews with veterans who had served abroad the Gudgeon before its final patrol, and the personal effects of the lost men's relatives, Ostlund has assembled the most accurate account yet of this remarkably successful submarine's exploits, of the men abroad, from steward to captain, and of what we know about her demise. Through these stories we experience the excitement of first sighting, then closing in on an enemy ship, and the seconds ticking away as the crew awaits the detonation of torpedoes. We hear the groans of collapsing bulkheads through the hull of the submarine, then the eerie cry of inch-thick steel as it is rent apart. The swish-swish-swish of a Japanese destroyer's attack approach. The thundercrack of exploding depth charges between muttered prayers and anguished, flinching anticipation where the crew, all equal in peril now, must sit absolutely still and take the punishment as they suppress the urge to do something, anything. We also share the anguish of the girls they left behind when they learned the ship was lost; and of the memories and life lessons of the young men who went to sea abroad Gudgeon before its last patrol knowing hardly anything, and coming home having seen too much. The book recounts the mysterious disappearance of the USS Gudgeon in April 1944.  Very Good/None issued

Henry Winstanley and the Eddystone Lighthouse
Hart-Davis, Adam
ISBN: 0750918357
Sutton Publishing 2002  2002 
  8vo hardcover 224pp index, b/w illus. very good+ / very good+ d/w. On 26 November 1703, during the worst storm that Britain had ever seen, Henry Winstanley died in his pioneering lighthouse as it was blown apart. He had defied incredible odds to build the first Eddystone Lighthouse in 1698, saving the lives of many sailors from the fate of the thousands who previously died upon the rocks. The Great Gale not only destroyed the man and his lighthouse, but also saw complete devastation throughout the land. And at sea, some 8000 sailors were drowned that night, within yards of the land. Winstanley was an ingenious man. He owned a house of gadgets which was one of London's foremost attractions for decades. In 1695, two of his five ships were lost on Eddystone. He was determined that no more ships should founder and, though thwarted by weather and politics, he built a lighthouse, the first of its kind. It survived terrible winters and withstood devastating storms, guiding ships away from the treacherous rocks that lay ahead with its dim candlelight. After the great storm it was as if the lighthouse had never been. Ultimately, Winstanley's lighthouse led to the building of others on the Eddystone rocks and beyond, thus transforming the safety of shipping. This illustrated work vividly recreates the story of the Eddystone Lighthouse, the character of the man who built it with grim determination fighting against all odds, and the power of the elements that finally destroyed them both.

SELKIRK’S ISLAND
SOUHAMI, Diana
ISBN: 0753813343
Weidenfeld and Nicholson 2001  2001 
  8vo softcover 239pp index, b/w illus. very good . Selkirk was a pirate and a buccaneer who sailed on the South Seas on looting expeditions for gold and treasure. In 1703 he joined an expedition whose object was to plunder French and Spanish ships. Conditions on the ship were appalling; scurvy, dysentery and typhus flourished and most of the crew died or went mad. Eventually they reached the island of Juan Fernandez 400 miles off the coast of Chile where Selkirk opted to maroon himself. Suddenly solitude and silence were imposed and his only relationship was to the island and to himself. He learnt to kill goats with cudgels and use their skins for coats and shoes. He hollowed out a canoe and circumnavigated the island. He wished there were a woman on the island, but perhaps he used the goats he had tamed for his sexual satisfaction. Gradually he found that company was not essential and that he was the Governor of this island, afraid of nothing it contained.

THE DISCOVERY OF JEANNE BARET A Story of Science, the High Seas, and the First Woman to Circumnavigate the Globe
Ridley, Glynis
ISBN: 9780307463524
Crown Publishers New York 2010 First Edition
 Hardcover A remainder mark on bottom of page edges otherwise A fine copy in fine dustjacket. Postage will be reduced for this book. The year was 1765. Eminent botanist Philibert Commerson had just been appointed to a grand new expedition: the first French circumnavigation of the world. As the ships’ official naturalist, Commerson would seek out resources - medicines, spices, timber, food - that could give the French an edge in the ever-accelerating race for empire. Jeanne Baret, Commerson’s young mistress and collaborator, was desperate not to be left behind. She disguised herself as a teenage boy and signed on as his assistant. The journey made the twenty-six-year-old, known to her shipmates as 'Jean' rather than 'Jeanne', the first woman to ever sail around the globe. Yet so little is known about this extraordinary woman, whose accomplishments were considered to be subversive, even impossible for someone of her sex and class. When the ships made landfall and the secret lovers disembarked to explore, Baret carried heavy wooden field presses and bulky optical instruments over beaches and hills, impressing observers on the ships’ decks with her obvious strength and stamina. Expedition commander Louis-Antoine de Bougainville recorded in his journal that curious Tahitian natives exposed Baret as a woman, eighteen months into the voyage. But the true story, it turns out, is more complicated. In The Discovery of Jeanne Baret, Glynis Ridley unravels the conflicting accounts recorded by Baret’s crewmates to piece together the real story: how Baret’s identity was in fact widely suspected within just a couple of weeks of embarking, and the painful consequences of those suspicions; the newly discovered notebook, written in Baret’s own hand, that proves her scientific acumen; and the thousands of specimens she collected, most famously the showy vine bougainvillea.; 240 x 165mm; xiv, 288 pages Fine in Fine dust jacket

The Harvill Press London 1999 First Edition
 Hardcover Unpaginated, with duo tone photographs, a fine copy. Postage will be reduced for this book. The Beken archive is a marine photographic collection without equal. It is the compilation of a dynasty of marine photographers whose early images (on glass plates) date back to the 1880s. This album, modelled on the samples that representatives of the firm of Beken of Cowes used to carry is a tribute to the work of Frank and Keith Beken, the first and second generations of this family of professional marine photographers, between 1890 and 1950. The shelves in Cowes contain more than 75,000 glass plates and many more thousands of negatives. These pictures, chosen by Keith Beken, show decade by decade the fascinating changes and developments in the yachting world and place the boats in the context of the yachting epoch in which they sailed. They illustrate the beauty of the yachts and embody the spirit of a past age. ; 160 x 215mm Fine with no dust jacket

This book is available and will be shipped within two business days. All items are tracked and details are available on request. . In June 1972, the 43-foor schooner Lucette was attacked by killer whales and sank in 60 seconds. What happened next is almost incredible. In an inflatable rubber raft, with a 9 foot fiberglass dinghy to tow it, Dougal Robertson and his family were miles from any shipping lanes. They had emergency rations for only three days and no maps, compass, or instruments of any kind. After their raft sank under them, they crammed themselves into their tiny dinghy. For 37 days--using every technique of survival--they battled against 20-foot waves, marauding sharks, thirst, starvation, and exhaustion, adrift in the vast reaches of the Pacific before their ordeal was ended by a Japanese fishing boat. The Robertsons' strong determination shines through the pages of this extraordinary book which describes movingly their daily hopes and fears, crises and triumphs, tensions and heartbreaks.

Squadron/Signal Publications  2014 
 Soft Cover New book, 80 pages, SS14034. American Patrol Torpedo or PT boat crews served valiantly in every theater during World War II. From the Aleutians to the Mediterranean these men harassed enemy shipping, launched attacks against much more formidable warships, rescued downed air crews, and spirited General Douglas MacArthur to safety from Corregidor Island in March of 1942. PT boats also laid mines and smokescreens, coordinated sea-air rescue actions, and conducted intelligence and raiding operations. This 80-page volume chronicles the evolution, use, and eventual destruction of the U.S. PT boat fleet through photographs, many of them in color. Coverage includes ELCO, Higgins, and Huckins boats. Illustrated with 210 photographs, color profiles, and detailed line drawings.  As New

Imperial Japanese Navy Light Cruisers 1941-45
Stille, Mark
ISBN: 9781849085625
Osprey Pub Co  2012 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG187. Like their heavy cruiser brethren, the light cruisers built by the Imperial Japanese Navy in the build-up to WWII paid little more than lip service to the international naval treaties that were intended to keep the naval powers on a level playing field. The eight classes of light cruiser developed by the IJN were fast, well-armed, and technologically superior to the fleets the Allied powers could bring to bear. Serving with distinction across the Pacific Theatre, the IJN's light cruisers were committed to such actions as Midway and Leyte Gulf. Mark Stille continues Osprey's coverage of the IJN of WWII, with this concise and complete study of all 25 ships of the 8 light cruisers classes, from their design and development through to their ultimate fates. Detailed Osprey artwork and rare period photographs from the Fukui collection held in Kure, Japan, illustrate this discussion and provide great visual references for some of the most advanced naval vessels of WWII.   As New

Imperial Japanese Navy Submarines 1941-45
Stille, Mark
ISBN: 9781846030901
Osprey Pub Co Oxford, United Kingdom 2007 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG135. During World War II the Imperial Japanese Navy was at the forefront of submarine technology. It fielded the largest pre-nuclear submarines in the world, some capable of carrying floatplane bombers, which operated alongside fast combat vessels and midget submarines, all equipped with the best torpedoes available. The Japanese submarine fleet should have been an awe-inspiring force but, despite playing a crucial scouting role and enjoying several notable successes, it was surprisingly ineffective. Using unique color plates, Mark Stille describes the astounding technical advances of this range of vessels, and the wartime tactics responsible for their failure. Contents: Origins - Birth and growth of the Imperial Navy's submarine force, Development and operational history, I Series Submarines, RO Series Submarines, The Imperial Navy's submarine force - a post mortem, Bibliography, Color Plate Commentary, Index.  As New

US Fast Battleships 1938-91: The Iowa Class
Burr, Lawrence
ISBN: 9781846035111
Osprey Pub Co  2010 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG172. In 1938, the United States abandoned the constraints imposed by the Washington Treaty and began work on a new class of super-battleships. This book covers the design, construction, and employment of the four Iowa-class battleships, the largest in the American fleet. During World War II, they served as guards for the aircraft carriers and their bombardments provided cover for the numerous landings in the Pacific. At the war's end, the Japanese signed their surrender on the decks of an Iowa-class battleship, the USS Missouri. After World War II, the ships continued to serve, providing support during Korea, Vietnam, and even the first Gulf War. This book tells the full story of the greatest of the American battleships.   As New

US Standard-Type Battleships 1941-45 (1): Nevada, Pennsylvania and New Mexico Classes
Stille, Mark
ISBN: 9781472806963
Osprey Pub Co  2015 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG220. Written by US Navy expert Mark Stille, this book offers a unique insight into the Standard-type classes of US battleships. It provides a detailed investigation into the histories of each of the warships in the Standard-type battleship classes, the first three of which, the Nevada, Pennsylvania and New Mexico, formed the US Navy's main force in the inter-war period. The Standard-types reflected a new design philosophy: by designing each class to meet common standards of maneuvrability and handling, vessels of different classes could operate as a single tactical unit without being limited by the performance of the slowest and least maneuvrable ship. At the time of their construction, these ships incorporated the latest design features such as triple gun turrets. Although they were rendered increasingly obsolete by evolving naval doctrines and the ascendance of the fast battleship, they served with distinction throughout World War II. This study combines analysis of design features and an absorbing narrative of operational histories to offer a comprehensive picture of the Standard-type battleships, from the brutal destruction of the USS Arizona to the triumphant occupation of Japan.  As New

Iowa-Class Battleships on Deck
Doyle, David
ISBN: 9780897477529
Squadron/Signal Publications  2014 
 Soft Cover New book, 88 pages, SS26007. The Iowa-class battleships were America's - and the world’s - last active battleships, serving as recently as 1995. Back in the World War II era, six of the class were ordered, and four completed: Iowa, New Jersey, Missouri and Wisconsin. The Missouri rose to fame as the site of the Japanese surrender ending WWII. Each armed with nine 16-inch rifles able to hurl 2,700-lb shells more than 23 miles, the Iowas were capable of combating formidable sea-going foes. In actuality, however, their huge main guns were used instead, to shell enemy land positions during WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and the Gulf War. In later years their original arrays of 16-inch and five-inch guns were augmented with missiles, including the Harpoon as well as the Tomahawk cruise missiles. Explore the decks and depths of these mighty warships, once home to thousands of sailors, 88 pages packed with over 270 color photos, carefully chosen to show the subtle differences between these four near-identical ships.  As New

Square Bridge Fletcher Class Destroyers
Davis, Rick E.
ISBN: 9780996919913
Classic Warships Publishing  2016 
 Soft Cover New book, 72 pages. This book features over 115 images - including several in color - of the "Square Bridge" Fletcher class destroyers, the most numerous variant of the most numerous class of destroyers ever built. As with the previous "Round Bridge Fletcher" volume, the book is laid out by different variants within the Square Bridge type: Armed with two twin 40mm mounts, one on the fantail; Armed with three twin 40mm mounts; Armed with five twin 40mm mounts (first three); Armed with three twin 40mm mounts ("standard" type). Within this last group of "Square Bridge Fletcher's armed with three twin 40mm mounts", the book is further sub-divided by Builder/Yard: Bath Iron Works; Federal - Kearny; Boston Navy Yard; Charleston Navy Yard; Bethlehem Shipbuilding - Staten Island; Bethlehem Shipbuilding - San Francisco; Bethlehem Shipbuilding - San Pedro; Gulf Shipbuilding; SeaTac/Todd Shipbuilding. There is a small section on radar countermeasures mounted on the square bridge variants, and then a section on square bridge Fletcher's with the late-war Anti-Kamikaze Modification. As with CW42 - Round Bridge Fletchers, the layout of the book seems unorthodox at first, but once you flip through it, it makes sense and groups the types of variants together. Also included in the book is a page on the development history of the class, and a roster of the Square Bridge ships and their fates (fourteen were lost during the war). The book does not deal with post war careers.  As New

US Heavy Cruisers 1941-45: Pre-war Classes
Stille, Mark
ISBN: 9781782006299
Osprey Pub Co  2014 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG210. Designed and produced under the regulations of the Washington Naval Treaty, the heavy cruisers of the Pensacola, Northampton, Portland, New Orleans and Wichita classes were exercises in compromise. While they possessed very heavy armament - the Pensacolas, for example, carrying a main battery of ten 8" guns - this came at the cost of protection - armor was the same thickness as a gun cruiser, and incapable of protecting the vessels from enemy 8" fire. As the classes evolved, these flaws began to be corrected, with the main battery being reduced, and increased protection being added to the vital areas of the ship. Despite these drawbacks, the pre-war heavy cruiser classes served with distinction throughout World War II.  As New

 Soft Cover New book, 159 pages, 130+ photos. The USS Missouri was the last of ten battleships completed in the early 1940s and the last battleship commissioned in the U.S. Navy. In 1945 alone, "Mighty Mo" escorted the Pacific Fleet's fast carrier force to the launch point of the first airstrikes against Japan since the famed Doolittle raid in 1942; supported the two Iwo Jima invasion landings; and bombarded Okinawa, repelling a dozen daylight raids and four night attacks in the process. During that year, she also survived a kamikaze hit, launching a hunter-killer operation that sank a Japanese submarine, and bombarded Kyushu and several industrial targets on the Japanese home islands. After being called upon again to fight in the Korean War, she was decommissioned into the U.S. Navy reserve fleets. She was reactivated and modernised in 1984 and participated in the 1991 Gulf War. Missouri was decommissioned a final time on Marche 31, 1992, having earned a total of eleven battle stars for service in World War II, Korea, and the Persian Gulf.  As New

Union River Ironclad 1861-65
Konstam, Angus
ISBN: 1841764442
Osprey Pub Co University Park, Illinois, U.S.A. 2002 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG056. At the start of the American Civil War, neither side had warships on the Mississippi River, which was a vital strategic artery. In what would prove the vital naval campaign of the war, both sides fought for control of the river. While the Confederates relied on field fortifications and small gunboats, the Union built a series of revolutionary river ironclads. First commissioned in January 1862, these ironclads spent the next two years battling for control of the Mississippi, fighting in a string of decisive engagements that altered the entire course of the war. This book explains how these vessels worked, how they were constructed, how they were manned and how they were fought.  As New

US Submarines 1941-45
Christley, Jim
ISBN: 1841768596
Osprey Pub Co University Park, Illinois, U.S.A. 2006 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG118. 39 photos, 7 pages of colour illustrations. Naval warfare in the Pacific changed completely with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. The strategic emphasis shifted from battleships to much more lethal, far-ranging weapons systems; one of these was the submarine. This book details the design and development, classes, weapons and equipment, tactics and operational history of the US submarine in World War II. Detailed tables, photographs, and superb color plates depict the force that had an effect far beyond its size - the submarine accounted for 55% of all Japanese shipping losses, despite suffering the highest percentage loss of any unit of the United State Armed Forces in World War II. Covers Design and development of the numerous submarine transitions during World War II, Variants, US submarine losses, and victories.  As New

Confederate Ironclad 1861-65
Konstam, Angus
ISBN: 1841763071
Osprey Pub Co Oxford, United Kingdom 2001 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG041. The creation of a Confederate ironclad fleet was a miracle of ingenuity, improvisation and logistics. Surrounded by a superior enemy fleet, Confederate designers adapted existing vessels or created new ones from the keel up with the sole purpose of breaking the naval stranglehold on the nascent country. Her ironclads were build in remote cornfields, on small inland rivers or in naval yards within sight of the enemy. The result was an unorthodox but remarkable collection of vessels, which were able to contest the rivers and coastal waters of the South for five years. This title explains how these vessels worked, how they were constructed, how they were manned and how they fought. Contents: Introduction; Creation of a fleet; Ironclad designs; The European option; Shipbuilding; The Ironclad’s role; Officers and men; Ordnance; Life on board; Tactics; The Confederate Ironclads; Bibliography; Color plate commentary; Index.  As New

View her keel laying under the watchful eye of (then) Undersecretary of the Navy, Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1914, follow her construction and commissioning in 1916, her service escorting Woodrow Wilson to the Paris Peace Conference in 1918, her roles as a 'cruise ship' for President Herbert Hoover in 1931 and as a location for filming a Hollywood movie in 1934. Glimpse the life of the crews that manned her and follow her through the maintenance and refits that dramatically changed her appearance. Describes the horrific explosion that ripped through her hull on the dark morning of 7 December 1941, and a series of unique photos document the years of wartime salvage work aboard the sunken battleship.

USS Lexington CV-2
Wiper, Steve
ISBN: 9780982358337
Classic Warships Publishing  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 72 pages. There are 70 black and white photos, one colorized photo on the front cover and four color photos of her on the back cover. This book is a more in-depth look at the Lexington during her 1937 thru 1942 career. Since the previous book was released more photos have been found and Steve includes them in this new book. As always they are reproduced with the maximum amount of detail possible. The photos are nicely captioned and show the important features of the ship. They show the dramatic transformation the ship went thru leading up to and during World War Two. Most of these photos have never appeared in public before. Also included are the May 1941 refit drawings and a portion of her final refit drawings from April 1942. Copies of documents listing changes made to the carrier are provided as well. There have always been a lot of questions about the carriers rebuilding in April 42 before her loss at the Battle of the Coral Sea and this book should finally lay all of those to rest. Of particular interest is the labeled photos pointing out the locations of the 50 cal and 1.1" gun mounts as well as other notable features. Some images have been pulled from film footage and enhanced to show many of the shadowy details in new light. Images of the destroyers attending to the Lexington in her final moments is equally fascinating.  As New

USS Missouri at War
Bonner, Kit & Carolyn
ISBN: 9780760332191
Zenith Press  2008 
 Soft Cover New book, 159 pages, 130+ photos. The USS Missouri was the last of ten battleships completed in the early 1940s and the last battleship commissioned in the U.S. Navy. In 1945 alone, "Mighty Mo" escorted the Pacific Fleet's fast carrier force to the launch point of the first airstrikes against Japan since the famed Doolittle raid in 1942; supported the two Iwo Jima invasion landings; and bombarded Okinawa, repelling a dozen daylight raids and four night attacks in the process. During that year, she also survived a kamikaze hit, launching a hunter-killer operation that sank a Japanese submarine, and bombarded Kyushu and several industrial targets on the Japanese home islands. After being called upon again to fight in the Korean War, she was decommissioned into the U.S. Navy reserve fleets. She was reactivated and modernised in 1984 and participated in the 1991 Gulf War. Missouri was decommissioned a final time on Marche 31, 1992, having earned a total of eleven battle stars for service in World War II, Korea, and the Persian Gulf.  As New

US Destroyers 1942-45: Wartime Classes
McComb, Dave
ISBN: 9781846034442
Osprey Pub Co  2010 
 Soft Cover New book, NVG165, 48 pages. Few if any 20th century warships were more justly acclaimed than the destroyers of the U.S. Navy’s Fletcher class. Admired as they were for their advanced and rakish design, it was their record as workhorses of the Pacific War that placed them among the most battle-tested and successful fighting ships of all time. This title describes the Fletchers and their Allen M. Sumner- and Gearing-class derivatives, their machinery, armament, and construction, with a listing of all 343 ships by hull number and builder. It features an operational history of the 287 ships commissioned during World War II, which traces the evolution of night surface action tactics in the Solomon Islands and the parallel development of the Combat Information Center; the drive across the Pacific and liberation of the Philippines with tables showing the rapid introduction of new squadrons; and the radar pickets’ climactic stand against kamikaze aircraft at Okinawa. With summaries of losses and decorations and specially commissioned artwork, this is a definitive book on the wartime US destroyer classes.  As New

 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG049. At the start of the American Civil War, neither side had warships on the Mississippi River and in the first few months both sides scrambled to gather a flotilla, converting existing riverboats for naval use. These ships were transformed into powerful naval weapons despite a lack of resources, trained manpower and suitable vessels. The creation of a river fleet was a miracle of ingenuity, improvisation and logistics, particularly for the South.

US Destroyers 1934-45: Pre-war Classes
McComb, Dave
ISBN: 9781846034435
Osprey Pub Co  2010 
 Soft Cover New book, NVG162, 48 pages. Since the beginning of the 20th century, destroyers have been all-purpose ships, indispensable in roles large and small - from delivering the mail at sea to screening other vessels and, where larger ships were not present, forming the front line in battle. This title details the 169 ships of ten classes introduced in the 1930s: early 1,500-tonners and 1,850-ton destroyer leaders designed to conform to the 1930 London Naval Treaty, plus the successor 1,570-ton Sims class and 1,620- and 1,630-ton Benson and Gleaves classes. In wartime, most 1,500-tonners and leaders initially saw front line duty in the Pacific but were relegated to secondary assignments as newer vessels arrived; while the later 1,620- and 1,630-tonners became the standard destroyers of the Atlantic War. This volume reveals the fascinating design story behind these pioneering classes - from the constraints of peacetime treaties to advances in propulsion engineering, and wartime modifications. With an operational overview of their service and tables listing all ships by class, builder, and initial squadron, this is the definitive guide to the pre-war US destroyer classes.  As New

Confederate Ironclad vs Union Ironclad: Hampton Roads 1862
Field, Ron
ISBN: 9781846032325
Osprey Pub Co  2008 
 Soft Cover New book, 80 pages, DUE14. The Ironclad was a revolutionary weapon of war. Although iron was used for protection in the Far East during the 16th century, it was the 19th century and the American Civil War that heralded the first modern armored self-propelled warships. With the parallel pressures of civil war and the industrial revolution, technology advanced at a breakneck speed. It was the South who first utilized ironclads as they attempted to protect their ports from the Northern blockade. Impressed with their superior resistance to fire and their ability to ram vulnerable wooden ships, the North began to develop its own rival fleet of ironclads. Eventually these two products of this first modern arms race dueled at the battle of Hampton Roads in a clash that would change the face of naval warfare. Fully illustrated with cutting-edge digital artwork, rare photographs and first-person perspective gun sight views, this book allows the reader to discover the revolutionary and radically different designs of the two rival Ironclads - the CSS Virginia and USS Monitor - through an analysis of each ship's weaponry, ammunition and steerage. Compare the contrasting training of the crews and re-live the horrors of the battle at sea in a war which split a nation, communities and even families.  As New

ISBN: 1841767204
Osprey Pub Co  2004 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG103. The primary Union strategy during the American Civil War was a massive naval blockade of the entire Southern coastline of the Confederacy, and it was in the effort to counter this blockade that the Confederates developed their first submarines and torpedo boats. This book traces the development of these new technologies, including the CSS ‘Little David’ and ‘Hunley’ - respectively the first torpedo boat and submarine to sink an enemy warship. The wreck of the ‘Hunley’ was raised in 2000, and this is the first book ever to integrate details of its recovery with an account of Confederate submarines in action. Contents: Introduction - Conception and role - The design of the submarine - The design of the torpedo boat - The spar torpedo - Operation - Spar-torpedo fleet - Bibliography - Colour plate commentary - Index.  As New
