cover image "Honor, Courage, Committment" are much more than words included in Navy recruiting commercials. These are the core values instilled in those who serve the nation as sailors in the United States Navy. The words reflect the magnificent efforts and accomplishments of millions of men and women who left home towns from Maine to Hawaii to go to sea in defense of freedom and democracy. Now, over 225 years after the Continental Congress approved an Act to establish a Continental Navy, the spirit and essence of the United States Navy is celebrated for the first time in a definitive, magnificently illustrated, large format chronology published with the Naval Historical Foundation.

U.S. Navy: A Complete History will be the definitive chronology on the Navy--serving as both a reference tool and a handsome addition to any military history collection. Building upon the official Navy chronologies, this book will present a year-by-year summary of significant naval activities from 1775 to the present. Key historical entries (as well as significant operations, technological advances, and the people instrumental in shaping the Navy) will be treated as expanded sidebar articles and written by leading experts in each subject. Treating these elements in detail bring this encyclopedic account of naval history to life.

U.S. Navy: A Complete History enables the history of the Navy to be cherished permanently in a handsome package that every sailor, submariner, and naval aviator will be proud to own and--with its unique battleship gray cover with type styled after hull markings--to display. This book will be read again and again by past and present naval personnel, their families and friends, and the countless others who have been inspired by the United States Navy.
