Along with John Paul Jones, John Barry was the most distinguished American naval officer of the Revolutionary War. Born in Ireland, he went to sea as a teenager and had a respected career in the merchant marine, including a record transatlantic passage. At the outbreak of war, Barry entered the Continental Navy and went on to further distinction in command of every type of American ship and in every type of operation they carried out, particularly harrying British commerce. After the war he enjoyed a successful career in the nascent (and perilous) China trade, before putting on a uniform again. This time he was the senior captain of the new U.S. Navy and showed skill in training the officers and men under him in the handling of the new big frigates. He might have been better known if he had not died in 1803; the last full-scale biography of him is nearly three generations old. The author deserves credit for a labor of love that is also a nearly indispensable addition to U.S. Navy collections.

For nearly a hundred years, these steel, grey-skinned battlewagons have fought off everything from Al Qaeda to dive-bombing Kamikazes. Some returned from the hell of war to become major tourist attractions for new generations. Others continue to patrol the worlds trouble-spots in Americas latest war. History Classics: Hero Ships profiles the complete combat history and evolving technology of a single American ship, often through multiple conflicts. These are the battleships, destroyers, aircraft carriers, submarines, and specialized ships that belong in the warship hall of fame. Archival footage and interviews are punctuated by all-access inspections of the ships "battle stations," conducted by young, active Navy sailors.
