Children's LiteraturePerhaps no branch of the American armed services has realized as high a degree of success as the Navy. One need only think of the way in which the United States Navy recovered from the defeat at Pearl Harbor to realize the level of skill and dedication that has typified this branch of service. In Richard Bartlett's United States Navy readers will encounter the men and women who serve on the most costly and powerful fighting machines available in America's arsenal. In this illustrated volume in the "United States Armed Services" series, the author presents brief entries that trace the Navy's history and modern role. Throughout the book inserts are included that flesh out the narrative with interesting facts and human-interest material. The writing is fairly crisp and augments the ample illustrations. Readers with any interest in naval affairs or military technology will find this a valuable book to peruse. 2004, Heinemann Library, Ages 10 up.
