Around the World Rally
Cornell, Jimmy
ISBN: 0713636904
Adlard Coles Nautical, 1993  1993 
  8vo softcover 208pp index, b/w illus. very good. This book provides an analysis of the way in which 36 different cruising boats, their equipment and their crews performed during 16 months and 24,000 miles of tough ocean sailing. Europa 92, the first round the world rally for cruising boats, brought together these yachts in an event which visited 18 countries, covering between them over 600,000 miles. This international fleet, ranging from 40 to 72 feet, formed a cross-section of current cruising boat design, and both boats and crews were well tried and tested during their voyage around the world. This book gives an insight into the successes and failures experienced by the participants. Divided into sections covering all aspects of cruising from equipment, instruments, sails and maintenance to provisioning, navigation and watchkeeping, its conclusions offer lessons to any sailor, whether cruising in home water or planning a circumnavigation.

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.

PT Boats In Action
Doyle, David
ISBN: 9780897477581
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

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

Alaska Class Cruisers

ISBN: 9780985714987
Classic Warships Publishing  2015 
 Soft Cover New book, 72 pages. This book is a photographic history of the cruisers of the ALASKA class, of which three were laid down, but only two, USS ALASKA CB-1 & USS GUAM CB-2 were completed.

Their completion late in the Second World War, only allowed them to see action for the last few months of the war, and they were soon retired. This book contains 72 pages of photos of the two ships completed, as well as photos of the third incomplete vessel of the class, HAWAII. A brief history on these cruisers is provided, as well as informative captions about details seen in each photograph, and statistical data on the class.  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
