Présentation de l'éditeur

The most complete resource of its kind, complete with up-to-date photographs, line drawings and useful appendixes Continuing its longstanding tradition as the most complete naval resource of its kind, this updated 19th edition of The Naval Institute Guide to the Ships and Aircraft of the U.S. meets the high expectations and exacting standards of those who rely on this volume to stay informed and to make related policy, force level, technological and weapons decisions. Packed with comprehensive information, up-to-date photographs, line drawings, and useful appendixes, this timely new guide describes the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard during an intensive period of transformation while engaged in combat operations as the Muslim world undergoes dramatic changes. In describing ships and aircraft, extensive coverage is given to the new littoral combat ships, joint high-speed vessels, GERALD R. FORD-class aircraft carriers, and other new ships as well as developments in shipboard ballistic missile defense. At the same time, the convoluted path in surface combatant construction is deciphered while the belated decision to cancel the Marine expeditionary fighting vehicle is explained. Also addressed in detail is the new F-35 series joint strike fighter and other aviation programs. Similarly addressed are Navy personnel, Marine Corps issues, Coast Guard forces, marine mammals, unmanned underwater and aerial vehicles, and other aspects of U.S. naval forces.

A most thorough over-view. 20 janvier 2013
Par Ned Middleton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Updated periodically (every three years or so) this work provides a detailed description as at the time of publishing - in this case 2013.

Ordinarily, either a complete review of the ships "or" the aircraft of the US Fleet would provide sufficient material for such a book as this. To include both, however, provides the reader with a complete description of just about every single aspect of the ships and aircraft in service in the US Navy at the time each edition of this book is published. What surprised me, in fact, was the detailed descriptions of some items of sensitive equipment which much surely have been "classified." For example, whilst it may be fair to say that a picture of a particular type of antennae does not reveal exactly how it works, a photograph showing the "Reverse side of a SPY-1A antennae during assembly" might appear to show too much...

How strange that in most (if not all) countries, the perimeter fences of their military airfields proclaim "The taking of Photographs is prohibited" as though secret equipment might be frequently on display. When it comes to Naval ships and Aircraft and the equipment they display, however, it's as though the sign reads "Hey Buddy, go get your camera and see what I've got!"

Those comments, however, are not a reflection of the author's work, on the contrary, they simply reinforce the simple fact that this is a most thorough review of the subject in hand.


A most thorough review.

Latest Update on the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps 25 mai 2013
Par Motown - Publié sur Amazon.com

The is newest edition of a series of definitive descriptions of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. It offers brief historical background and detailed explanations of the organization and equipment of the United States Fleet. Although a bit pricey, it is the best unclassified resource available. A must have for serious researchers and writers about naval topics.

Good Reference but a Significant drop in Quality 8 mars 2014
Par Jim K - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
I purchased this reference book about a year ago when it first came out. As I have reviewed it over that time, I have found more and more errors in the text, the photo captions, etc. Some of the errors were brought forward from the previous editions. Considering the fact that the publishing date of this edition was delayed several times over a year, it is surprising that some of these errors made it through the proof read process. For example: The USS Enterprise cores were going to provide a life of 20 years or until 2115. Or, the Nimitz class ships had a manning complement of 32,000. There are simple spelling errors:"Alsaka" and other errors of that type that totally disappointed me. I have editions going back into the 60's and while there were occasional errors found in those editions, they were nowhere as numerous as I have found in this edition. In addition, the opinions expressed in this volume were much more numerous as well. It was noted that this is Mr. Polmar's last edition of this volume of works. Note to USNI, please spend more time in the proof reading process.

Gift for grandson 17 novembre 2014
Par catlib55 - Publié sur Amazon.com
This was a birthday gift for our grandson who turned 14 and is very interested in military ships and aircraft. His father says it reads like an encyclopedia, but our grandson seems to really like it. It arrived in time for his birthday party.
As always, excellent and thorough 10 septembre 2014

Fairly up-to-date even for 2014, though written in late 2011(?). Mr. Polmar includes thorough discussions of plans for the fleet for the coming decade, including discussions of issues such as the prospects of the LCS "class", future ICBM and conventional missile subs, and naval aviation. Future destroyer building plans, although not fully settled at the time of publication, have in fact followed the route of least resistance, with current plans to continue building many more improved Burke-class vessels. This is a fascinating and encyclopedic reference, really a necessity for anyone interested in our Navy, whether from a strategic, practical, or enthusiast viewpoint.
I was sorry to read in the preface that this was Mr. Polmar last edition as author, as he is passing the torch to a younger generation. He will be missed!
