History of United States naval operations in World War II by Samuel Eliot Morison( Book )
24 editions published between 1951 and 2010 in English and held by 2,034 libraries worldwide
Each of these 15 volumes covers a period and campaigns in the Pacific, Atlantic and North African waters during World War II. It was Morison's aim to show what the U.S. Navy accomplished in the greatest of all wars and how it was done. The story, in the main, is one of fighting; that is what the Navy is for and what its entire effort was directed toward. But the author included enough space to strategic discussions, planning, organization, and logistics to explain the end product -- the naval operations. And when other armed services of the United States and her allies participated, he brought them in too, although not in so great detail. Filled with many maps, a number of them larger fold-outs, and black and white photos of the ships, personnel and operations
The maritime history of Massachusetts, 1783-1860 by Samuel Eliot Morison( Book )
55 editions published between 1921 and 2013 in English and held by 1,758 libraries worldwide
The Harvard educated historian relates the history of seafaring Massachusetts during the period when the clipper ship dominated the seas. In his preface Morison states that this is "no catalogue of ships, or a naval chronicle, but a story of maritime enterprise; and of the shipping, seaborne commerce, whaling and fishing belonging to one American Commonwealth."
"Old Bruin" : Commodore Matthew C. Perry, 1794-1858 : the American naval officer who helped found Liberia, hunted pirates in the West Indies, practised diplomacy with the Sultan of Turkey and the King of the Two Sicilies ; commanded the Gulf Squadron in the Mexican War, promoted the steam navy and the shell gun, and conducted the naval expedition which opened Japan by Samuel Eliot Morison( Book )
10 editions published between 1967 and 1968 in English and held by 1,738 libraries worldwide
This is the story of a United States naval officer, whose nickname 'Old Bruin' - a tribute of his sailors to a voice whose roar carried through any gale- gives little hint of his extraordinary qualities. In Perry's person were combined the strategical savvy, scientific interest, and diplomatic finesse. Highlights of his career include: Promoting the founding of Liberia; fighting in the war of 1812; fighting pirates in the West Indies; and "opening Japan" without firing one hostile shot. He also worked incessantly for the health and welfare of sailors, for naval education and widespread naval improvements in general
