Through powerful pictures and an engaging text, draws the reader into a fascinating world unknown to most people. Few of us have ever had the opportunity to cross the ocean in a fast frigate, plumb its depths in a nuclear submarine, catapult off the deck of a carrier at night or participate in the myriad of activities necessary for the smooth functioning of a modern seagoing fleet. Now, thanks to the combination of an award-winning photographer, a best-selling author and a publisher steeped in naval traditions, these experiences can be shared by all in this magnificent book, the first photographic portrait of America's Navy to be published in forty years.
