MOBI à The US Navy ¸ Craig L. Symonds

The US NavyPlay in world affairs Internal and external challenges dramatically altered the size and character of the Navy with long periods of uiet inertia alternating with rapid expansion emerging out of crises The history of the navy reflects the history of the nation as a whole and its many changes derive in large part from the changing role of the United States itse A good serviceable uick introduction to the history of the US Navy basically a lecture Of course much is left out but it should serve as an appetizer to get readers to pick out areas they might have most interest in Some things seem to have been purposely left out especially the black eyes such as the shooting down of the Iranian airliner the loss of nuclear bombs the Iowa explosion Forrestal Indianapolis but I suppose that is to be expected in a short mostly positive volume I applaud his decision to broach some of the social issues as well as positive improvements to the fleet As a son of a submariner I find myself often delving into naval history and this book would be a good book to hand to youngsters particularly to whet their appetite
