Click to Enlarge"TO SHINING SEA: A History of the United States Navy 1775-1998" by Stephen Howarth is a landmark work of naval history--the most comprehensive and authoritative narrative account of American sea power written in recent times.

Here are the first engagements of the tiny Continental Navy, the fight against the Barbary pirates, the watershed clash of the MONITOR and the MERRIMACK, the development--from blueprint to battleship--of the US Navy's first modern capital ships and submarines, the great battles of WWII, the navy's deployment in Vietnam and in the Persian Gulf, and for this edition a new chapter discussing recent developments in the US Navy.

. 'TO SHINING SEA' is in my opinion the most readable book on the subject ever written.___E.B. Potter, Professor Emeritus of Naval History. 630 pages. Photographs, maps, illustrations.
