The present publication was prepared by Michael Smith, world recognized naval history expert, and is dedicated to the light cruisers of the United States Navy Fleet. The book starts with some general information and historical overview. Then, the author proceeds to the vessels, starting with the Cleveland and Independence class light cruisers, giving not only technical descriptions and data for those vessels but also supplementing the figures with the excellent narrative text and perfect wartime photographs.

Apart from the original specifications of the ships, the book also provides the information about the modifications. Among the vessels addressed in this publication, there are such famous vessels as USS Princeton, USS Monterey, USS Cowpens, USS Belleau Wood, USS Langley, USS Bataan, USS Cabot, USS San Jacinto and many other. Needless to say that this volume will definitely be very highly appreciated by all lovers of naval history, warships and naval armament. Note that the author is not focusing only on the technical details but also tells the very interesting history of each of the vessels, how they served, when they were built, which battles they participated in etc.
