To shining sea : a history of the United States Navy, 1775-1991 by Stephen Howarth( Book )
19 editions published between 1991 and 1999 in English and held by 1,543 libraries worldwide
"'To Shining Sea' is a landmark of naval history, the most comprehensive and authoritative narrative account of American sea power written in recent times. From John Paul Jones's defiant cry 'I have not yet begun to fight, ' to the war in the Persian Gulf, 'To Shining Sea' recounts the epic story of the men and ships of the United States Navy ... We follow the first engagements of the tiny Continental Navy; we fight the Barbary pirates; ... we witness the watershed clash of the 'Monitor' and the 'Merrimack;' we follow, from blueprint to battleship, the development of the U.S. Navy's first modern capital ships and submarines; and we come to appreciate the service's role in the ascendancy of the United States to a global power. Howarth brings us vividly up to date with the painful but ultimately fruitful post-Vietnam reassessment of the Navy's organization and capabilities, and the service's deployment at the onset of the Persian Gulf conflict ..."
The Knights Templar by Stephen Howarth( Book )
22 editions published between 1982 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,375 libraries worldwide
Here is a complete account of one of the strangest phenomena of medieval history : The Poor Fellow Soldiers of Christ, the Knights of the Temple of Solomon--more popularly known as the Knights Templar. In their brotherhood, the Knights united two conflicting medieval ideals, for they were both monks and warriors, committed to God and committed to war. In the strict hierarchy of the feudal world, where every man owed loyalty and allegiance to his overlord, the Templars obeyed no one except the Pope. Acquiring land and castles by gift conquest and purchase in every part of Europe and the eastern Mediterranean, they became a church within the Church--a state within the State. They were bankers, merchants, diplomats and tax gatherers and though themselves poor, the wealth of their order was legendary. They led the Crusades against Moslem States of the East, yet when their order was destroyed in 1314, its enemies were not Muslims but Christians. Individually and as a group they were accused of heresy, treachery, sodomy, usury, blasphemy, idolatry and a number of unspeakable sins. Pope Clement to whom the Order owed complete allegiance described them as 'horrible, wicked and detestable'. This book charts the rise and fall of the Order, tracing the lives and deaths of its members and examining the motives of its supporters and opponents

The story of P & O : the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company by David Armine Howarth( Book )
13 editions published between 1986 and 1995 in English and held by 295 libraries worldwide
"P & O is as old as seagoing steamships and its story weaves like thread thourgh the history of the British Empire. For 150 years P & O has been one of the world's greatest shipping lines. Beginning with the mail contract to Gibraltar, P & O quickly became the natural way for generations of Englishmen and women to travel to India and the Far East. Many great names and colourful personalities have played their part in the story since Brodie McGhie Wilcox and Arthur Anderson won, in 1837, their first contract to carry mail. Within a few years P & O ships were familiar sights in ports throughout the Mediterranean and the Middle East. As early as 1844 Arthur Anderson invented deep-sea cruising, and by the 1880s Victorian doctors had no hesitation in prescribing health-giving sea voyages. Ahundred years later cruising on P & O;s famous white ships remains an important part of thecompany's activities. In Queen Victoria's age, travelling to Egypt or Aden was exciting enough but it was as the gateway to India and the Far East (especially Hong Kong) that P & O;sname became indelibly imprinted on the minds of Englishmen of every class and fortune, "--Jacket
