The US Navy's Fast Attack Submarines, Vol. 1: Los Angeles Class 688 This illustrated book covers the complete history of the United States Los Angeles class attack submarines from initial design and construction, through testing and trials, to its current operations. The nuclear-powered USS Los Angeles (SSN-688) class attack submarine represented the lead ship of the largest group of vessels constructed for the US Navy during the Cold War and was purposefully designed for anti-submarine operations against the Soviets. Sixty-two boats were built and launched between 1976 and 1996, and the class continues to serve in force to this day. The exclusive and extensive photographic coverage of the boat's interior is featured here for the first time. Details of the boats' armament include four 21" bow-mounted torpedo tubes supporting the Mk 48 ADCAP torpedo series; Tomahawk (BGM-109) cruise missile; and Harpoon (UGM-84) anti-ship missile capability. The author's unprecedented access allows the reader a first-time view of these submarines. 160 Pages; Hardcover The US Navy's Fast-Attack Submarines, Vol. 2: Seawolf Class (SSN-21) and Virginia Class (SSN-774) Successors to the US Navy's Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarines (presented in volume 1), the Seawolf- and Virginia-class SSNs are presented here from their initial design and construction, through testing and trials, to current operations. From its debut in 1997, the nuclear-powered Seawolf (SSN-21) represented the lead ship of the deadliest submarine ever to be constructed for the USN during the Cold War. With the end of the Cold War, the Seawolf-class SSNs were limited to the three that were under construction at the time, and the program was terminated. With only three in the class, the super-secret USS Jimmy Carter (SSN-23) is virtually off-limits to any and all photography. The author's unprecedented access onboard a Seawolf-class SSN-the USS Connecticut (SSN-22)-is a first for the Navy and provides exclusive coverage found only in this book. In place of the Seawolf class, the Virginia-class attack submarine is an advanced stealth, multi-mission nuclear-powered submarine for deep-ocean antisubmarine warfare and littoral (shallow water) operations. 175 Pages; Hardcover Over the last thirty-five years, Jim Goodall has authored more than two dozen books and articles on military aircraft, naval ships, and submarines, with a focus on low observables, or, as known today, stealth.

Red Hot & Smokin': BBQ - BURGERS - BIRD $24.99
Smokehouse BBQ and Southern Fried chicken are a way of life for award-winning chef Graeme Stockdale (The Stockpot Kitchen). Served up generously with a side of humor, Fried Chicken, Ferments & Flames cover everything from quick and easy mid-week eating to serve-the-neighborhood style feasts. At the heart of it all is the emphasis on eating well, from scratch, giving you the confidence to know your way around a BBQ and kitchen and the incentive to 'wing' it now and then. Graeme Stockdale (Author) I am fortunate enough to be in the best profession in the world. Sure, the long hours and 50 C (120 F) degree kitchen heat in the middle of summer means that I may have a severe electrolyte deficiency and a standing prescription for chaff cream every December - February. And my inundation with people using the vernacular of the sailor means that I will never be able to work in primary schools, but I still reckon it really is the best stuff ever. That's what this book is about. It's about how my love for food, particularly BBQ and fried chicken, has taken over my life. How I gambled everything I had on starting a restaurant to run it how I wanted to run it. Without owners second-guessing my menu and trying to run my ship (I should add also, without their stacks of cash, a definite downside!). It's about how if you believe in something and work your arse off then it will all work out. And if it doesn't, then I know how to make a good meal that I can cry into.
