9 Abbazia, Patrick Mr. Roosevelt's Navy. Private War of the United States Atlantic Fleet, 1939-42
Annapolis Naval Institute Press 1976 0870213954 / 9780870213953 Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
Xii, 520 pages, illustrations, map, cloth, DJ, very good. From the DJ: "The U. S. Navy was at war in the Atlantic long before 7 December 1941, but little is known about that conflict. Mr. Roosevelt's Navy is a vivid, thoroughly researched account of this undeclared war upon which Mr. Roosevelt embarked in order to sway the desperate Battle of the Atlantic in favor of Britain's hard-pressed Royal Navy. Not only is the book a history of the U. S. Atlantic Fleet and its impact on German-American strategy and diplomacy prior to and immediately following American entry into World War II, but it is also a lively account of the muted battles and endless patrols that were the pattern of life for American sailors in the cold, gray Atlantic."

14 Baer, George W. One Hundred Years of Sea Power. the U. S. Navy 1890-1990
Stanford, CA Stanford University Press 1994 0804722730 / 9780804722735 Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
[10], 553, [1] pages, cloth, DJ, very good. Embossed label of the previous owner, a noted collector. From the DJ: "This is clearly one of the two or three most important works in American naval history published in the last decade; it has the potential to become a classic in the field. Well researched and carefully nuanced, it provides a distinctive perspective on the evolving historical relationship between national interest and national politics on the one hand and naval power on the other. Not only is this a significant contribution to scholarship—one that will critically influence how historians and political scientists think about American naval power—it is an enormously readable work. Baer writes beautifully, and he has organized his material effectively. The book is fully accessible to anyone interested in naval history." —Edward Rhodes, Rutgers University.
