This generously illustrated volume examines the role of the British and American navies in the Arabian Gulf from shortly after the Second World War to the present. Ballantyne (editor of WARSHIPS IFR magazine) describes the responses of these navies to various disputes, including the Abadan Crisis of 1951, the Tanker War of the 1980s, and the Iraq War of 2003. The text is accompanied throughout by maps and photographs (mostly in color) of ships in action in the Middle East. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
