Book Description Naval Institute Press. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, The American Steel Navy (Revised edition), John D. Alden, A classic work brought back into print after more than a decade, this handsomely illustrated book has long been sought for the view it offers of the US Navy during one of its most critical periods - the years between 1883 and 1909, when the navy evolved from an insignificant fleet of mostly wooden ships into the famous "Great White Fleet" that flaunted the nation's status as a world power. It is especially prized for its superb collection of nearly 350 photographs, many of which are considered masterpieces of American photographic art. All beautifully reproduced and displayed, many covering entire pages of the book, these photographs provide permanent records of the ships' exterior appearances, as well as rare shots of their interiors, and fascinating views of shipboard life. The text covers every important phase of naval development and service, from the evolution of ship design, armament, and production brought about by the introduction of the steel hull, to the training and daily routine of the ships' officers and men. Such key personalities as Theodore Roosevelt, Alfred Thayer Mahan, and Stephen B.Luce and their efforts to raise the status of the fleet are also fully addressed. This a book that has proven appeal to a broad audience. While providing the specialist with accurate technical details, it remains lucid enough to engage the general reader.
