From history’s earliest days men have gone down to sea—on logs, then boats, and, subsequently, ships. Norman Polmar and Christopher Cavas maneuver in Most Wanted™ style to find the best and worst of the admirals, ships, inventions, submarines, torpedoes, and aircraft that have fought on, over, and under the waves. The top-ten lists in Navy’s Most Wanted™ rank the world’s biggest battleships, the fastest aircraft, and most powerful submarines. Pop culture’s take on naval affairs is shown in chapters on the best and worst Navy movies, the Navy in song and fiction, and movie stars and politicians who served.
Read the best naval quotes and learn where they came from, marvel at the variety of weapons that have gone to sea, and shiver at the world’s worst naval disasters. Polmar and Cavas have mined their expert knowledge to entertain readers with interesting and intriguing trivia on all things blue and gold. Perfect for sailors, family members, and anyone with an interest in the Navy both historically and today, Navy’s Most Wanted™ belongs on bookshelves, nightstands, and in lockers everywhere—even Davey Jones’s!
