Description: 480 Pages - 27 Photos - 47 Illustrations.Long considered the bible of commanding officers at sea, this classic guide covers virtually every subject of relevance to the command of a U.S. Navy ship. The first revision in fifteen years, the fifth edition represents a major update in material--from assuming command and relations with the crew to fleet operations and combat. Among the issues addressed are the many aspects of seagoing command practice and maritime operations that have changed as a result of lessons learned from operations in the Persian Gulf, Bosnia, and Haiti. Changes in the Unified Command Plan are indicated by shifts in the commanding officer's chain of command and geographic and functional responsibilities of the CINCs.This new edition also reflects the current emphasis on joint and combined operations and its resulting impact on command operations. Additionally, the book covers the dramatic downsizing of the fleet, the inclusion of women on warships, and the significant changes that have occurred in maintenance support and practices, forward deployed support, and afloat logistics. The domination of automatic data processing on daily routines is discussed along with important changes in communications. A large selection of new photographs and many useful appendixes are included in this revision. No officer either presently in command or contemplating a future shipboard command assignment can afford to be without such an informative, up-to-date guide. ** Price Includes US Shipping ***** Only 1 left in stock ***
