About the Book
Naval history titles focus on the area of military history dealing with war at sea, which is a sub-discipline of the broader field of maritime history. Most of that focus has been on combat between ships at sea, although frequently naval strategy is centered around the need to protect transport shipping. Some of the epic sea battles of all time are: Salamis, between the Greek city-states and the Persian Empire under King Xerxes (480BC); Lepanto, between the Holy Roman Empire and the Ottoman Empire (1571); Trafalgar, between the British and French navies (1805); Tsushima Straights, between the Japanese and Russian empires (1905); and Midway, between Japanese and US carrier forces (1942).

History derives from Greek historia, meaning “inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation”. It is the study of the past as described in written documents, with events occurring before written records being considered prehistory. World history is generally considered a teaching topic rather than a research topic. There are many history text books of varying quality, with some addressing the teaching of history or historiography, the process of undertaking research in history.

Books on the military history of the United States span a period of more than two centuries, over which the United States evolved from a rebellious colony of Great Britain (the American War of Independence, 1775–1783), through the disastrous American Civil War (1861–1865), late but vital participation in World War 1 (1917-18), and a critical role in World War II (1941–1945), to the world’s foremost superpower from the late 20th century to present.
