Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
Frigates have been a part of the American Navy since the Revolutionary War. Designed to be smaller warships, frigates have fulfilled many purposes over time. In the modern navy frigates often accompany other vessels with purposes that include anti-submarine support, air defense, and tactical defense. Frigates are compact ships powered by highly effective power plants very similar to jet airplanes. Frigates are also manned by sailors whose training is at least equal to that of any other navy in the world. In Frigates Hamilton takes his readers on a tour of this redoubtable fighting ship. In telling this story, Hamilton does an excellent job of detailing not only the mechanics of a warship but also daily life for the men and women who serve on it. In this way the author crafts a book that will engage readers interested in modern fighting ships and the sailors who serve on them. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
