This illustrated reference book has a most comprehensive overview of United States Navy Divers. An elaborate, oversized, hard-cover book, packed with full-color photos from the highlights of diving history, navy diving equipment, diver training, and organization to the present day global war on terrorism; it deserves a place of honor on your bookshelf!
Although United States Navy Diver; Performance Under Pressure primarily documents navy diving today; the divers, scientists and engineers of the US Navy Diving Program have spent over a century pushing the limits of human endurance and technology to improve both diver safety and operational capabilities. This is their story, their photos and their experiences.
Readers will absorb the text and photographs with a feeling of pride and appreciation for those who have proudly served our nation as Navy Divers.
