This book examines the burning issues facing today's Navy and Congress. Although rapid progress in aircraft and bombing technology has caused some to question the viability of naval warfare, the role of the navy has actually grown. The Navy is able to move an astonishing amount of firepower to any corner of the globe and once there, project formidable threats or punishing misery on an opposing power. The navy has shown that it can adapt to a new world. The book also includes an important history of the US Navy.

By nature, the modern warship must basically fight in three separate environments - on the surface of the sea, under the surface and in the air above. This is a concise, detailed and color-illustrated guide to modern warships from around the world. To give a balanced picture it is not only the major vessels that are described but also representative examples of smaller craft such as fast corvettes, attack craft and mine sweepers. For convenience and ease of reference the ships are grouped according to the following broad classifications - Aircraft Carriers, Submarines, Major Warships, Destroyers and Frigates, Small Warships, Amphibious Warfare and Logistic Support Vessels. Details include Displacement, Length, Draught, Power Plant, Speed and Range, Complement, Missiles Carried, Guns and Sensors.

In 1922 the US Navy commissioned its first small experimental aircraft carrier. This was followed into service by two much larger and capable carriers in 1927 with five more being built prior to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor including three large Yorktown class.To take the offensive against the Japanese Navy, the American Congress funded by far the largest carrier building programme in history based on the Essex class, a larger version of the pre-war Yorktown vessels. Of the twenty-six ordered, fourteen were commissioned in time to see Second World War service. These were joined by many smaller classes of carriers, including light carriers and escort carriers.Post-war ever larger and more capable carriers were commissioned. Since 1975, when the first of a fleet of ten nuclear-powered Nimitz class carriers was commissioned, they have epitomized United States superpower status and worldwide power projection. These are due to be replaced in the decades to come with the even more sophisticated nuclear-powered Gerald R. Ford class.Compiled and written by Michael Green, Aircraft Carriers of the United States Navy contains superb images of all the different types of classes of carriers employed by the US Navy since 1922. These and its highly informative text and captions give the reader a broad overview of this fascinating subject.

The last thing Department of Justice lawyer Patrick Carlton wanted was this case-a minor antitrust suit over a small diamond mine in Arkansas, forced on him by a vindictive boss. Settle it and be done with it, he's told, and he goes about doing just that-until he finds out what lurks beneath the surface. The conspiracy he uncovers, beginning with an obscure 1920 geological survey and leading all the way to South Africa, Siberia, Rome and the White House, revolves around one obsession: diamonds. Carlton lands the case of his life, and it will be his last if he can?t locate a hidden Russian diamond stockpile, bring a corrupt White House chief of staff to justice and break up a diamond monopoly controlled by the nefarious Waterboer Mining Co. Carlton, an unlikely and reluctant hero, finds help from a disparate group, including a beguiling female coworker, a CIA desk-jockey and a flamboyant millionaire-entrepreneur. Lined against them is an array of factions looking to use the diamonds to further their own agendas. Carlton's quest to find the diamonds-and save his own skin-takes him across the Atlantic and into the Barents Sea, to the Vatican and inside the White House. Forced to confront one foe after another, Carlton finally gets Waterboer in the place he can hurt them most-a courtroom. A compelling page-turner from beginning to end, Kublicki delivers the goods with the legal and military realism of Grisham and Clancy. "Tom Clancy for the legal set."-Kirkus Reviews "Kublicki builds an impressively complex plot in this well-crafted, exciting political thriller?[he] shows more than enough of the right stuff to make this a readable, engaging debut."-Publishers Weekly "Tightly written and fast paced a la Tom Clancy's thrillers....Recommended for most popular fiction collections."-Library Journal "This is an enormous novel for first-timer Kublicki, and though vast in scope, its intense drama keeps the pages turning at a quick pace. Look forward to his next work."-Booklist
