The Navy

Overview

"Honor, Courage, Commitment" 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 hometowns 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...

Overview

"Honor, Courage, Commitment" 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 hometowns 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 book published in conjunction with the Naval Historical Foundation.

The Navy is too large, too technically complex, and too historic to be adequately discussed by one or two persons. Written by an outstanding team, including historians, authors, and experts associated with the Naval Historical Center, U.S. Naval Academy, National Defense University, Naval War College, United States Naval Institute, Naval Aviation Association, Naval Historical Foundation, and Navy Memorial Foundation, as well as several distinguished retired naval officers including six Admirals, The Navy has 320 pages of riveting and informative text and stories of the Navy experience: essays on U.S. Navy history and today's fleet, focusing not only on the ships and weapons, but especially on the people that make it all work. The thoughtful incorporation of full-color and vintage photography, portraits, recruiting posters, and historically inspired paintings complements the text while adding the excitement that only spectacular illustrations can bring to a book.

The Navy enables the history of America's fleet to be cherished permanently in a handsome package that every sailor will be proud to own and--with its unique medallion-inlaid cover--to display. This book will be read again and again by past and present sailors, their families and friends, and the countless others that have been inspired by the exploits of the United States Navy.
