The NAVY YARD ASSOCIATES is devoted to the production of
quality books and superior art work with regard to the naval
sciences and in particular the ships and aircraft of the UNITED
The books presented are by well known naval writer Robert F.
Sumrall. All have been carefully researched from official docu-
ments, photographs, and drawings to produce the most reli-
able, accurate, and informative books possible.
The books explore not only the exterior portion of the ship
where the guns, radar, and other features are clearly visible but
also areas deep inside where the magazines, machinery, and
other equipment necessary to operate the ship and its arma-
ment are located. The text is profusely illustrated which, in ef-
fect, makes these books a presentation of "how things work."
