This book examines all of the nearly 500 vessels of the Navy's unique miscellaneous auxiliary (AG) and unclassified miscellaneous (IX) categories. It provides individual histories, specifications and illustrations for more than 40 of these ships in 32 chapters, as well as concise directory listings for another 400 vessels. The main text is supplemented with a glossary of terms and abbreviations, a bibliography and three appendices, and is further reinforced with a useful detailed index. The focus of the book is on a heterogeneous and little-known grouping of Navy ships that includes both celebrated men-of-war (past their prime) and hundreds of very diverse ships with fascinating stories, missions, achievements and roles. An engrossing book with lots of illustrations, published at $34.95, our price only $18.95.
