Uncommon Warriors: 200 Years of the Most Unusual American Naval Vessels
By Ken Sayers Naval Institute Press 9781591147602 Hardcover 288 Pages July 2012
Having written a number of books in this format, I can fully appreciate the author's passion and joy in compiling this welcome addition to naval history. Mr Sayers has compiled a list of all the disparate array of vessels that were included in the miscellaneous auxiliary classifications of AG and IX. Contained are brief histories of the vessels Sayers thought were the most noteworthy and are a nice extra. Numerous illustrations are contained and we give this book a hearty well done!
