Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

To Shining Sea is a landmark work of naval history--the most comprehensive and authoritative narrative account of American sea power written in recent times. From John Paul Joness defiant cry "I have not yet begun to fight," to the war in the Persian Gulf, Stephen Howarth chronicles the epic story of the United States Navy. 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 U.S. Navys first modern capital ships and submarines, the great battles of World War II in the Pacific, and the navys deployment in Vietnam and in the Persian Gulf. For this edition, Howarth provides a new afterword discussing recent developments in the U.S. Navy.

Stephen Howarth is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and the Royal Geographical Society and Life Member of the United States Naval Institute. Among his books are Men of War: Great Naval Leaders of World War II, The Fighting Ships of the Rising Sun, and (with David Howarth) Lord Nelson.
