History of United States Naval Operations in World War II. (Recent Books).
That is an exceedingly long heading, but this is one of those works for which not much more is necessary. Here are facsimile paperback reprints of the first six volumes of Samuel Eliot Morison's invaluable, irreplaceable, fifteen-volume History of United States Naval Operations in World War II. Knock-off hardcover sets can be had (check on-line), if one's purpose is simply to put a row of handsome bindings on the shelf; these are handy, attractive, and sturdy trade paperbacks meant for people who will actually read them. Presumably--as appears from the publisher's Website--the other nine volumes are forthcoming.
