Seapower

Overview

The U.S. Navy is the most powerful naval force that has ever sailed the oceans. Although less numerous than its World War II predecessor, today's navy packs a far greater punch tactically and strategically.

Huge aircraft carriers carry sophisticated aircraft in greater numbers than most countries' air forces. Nuclear-powered and nuclear weapons-equipped submarines stealthily police the ocean depths carrying the ultimate deterrent.

Overview

The U.S. Navy is the most powerful naval force that has ever sailed the oceans. Although less numerous than its World War II predecessor, today's navy packs a far greater punch tactically and strategically.

Huge aircraft carriers carry sophisticated aircraft in greater numbers than most countries' air forces. Nuclear-powered and nuclear weapons-equipped submarines stealthily police the ocean depths carrying the ultimate deterrent.

Amphibious warfare vessels can deliver marines to any trouble spot in the world, and ensure they are supplied for the land battles. As well as these major classes of warship, the U.S. Navy also has a plethora of support craft to crew and maintain, including minesweepers, patrol craft, logistic vessels, and command ships. Aside from these smaller types, the navy operates around 300 major units at the present time. This gives the U.S. Navy the ability to project awesome power.

Although designed with the Cold War in mind, today's U.S. Navy is concerned with international terrorism rather than a global superpower rival that has imperiled U.S. security at home and abroad. The navy continues to see submarines, carriers, and amphibious forces as the cornerstones of its strength and the 21st century will see increasingly greater resources funneled into developing greater special forces' capabilities and more multi-roled warships.

Seapower is a tribute to the ships, aircraft, men and women of the U.S. Navy as seen through the lenses of the people who know them best, the navy's own photographers. The huge page size allows for a design that maximizes the impact of the photographs and shows off the massive vessels in brilliant details.
