The compact history of the United States Navy by Fletcher Pratt( Book )

30 editions published between 1957 and 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 954 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book tells the story of the United States Navy itself--how it began; what it has been; and what it is today. The author tells too, the story of the American sailor--who he has been and who he is today; where he came from at first and where he comes from now; what he has done to the Navy; and what the Navy has done to him. The ships are here too, with their stories, as fascinating as those of the men who manned them. This book, then is an all-time naval review, in which almost two hundred years of American history pass by in their relationship to American ships and sailors. From the privateers and their men without uniforms to the atomic powered ships now being built and their crews of skilled technicians, this is the story of the United States Navy--afloat, ashore, underwater and in the air

McClellan -- but he also canvassed average citizens on both sides, recounting their manners, appearance, values, and habits in remarkable detail.
