Simplified US Frigate Drawings

The following images are from either my book The Key to Honor or from its upcoming sequel, The Price of Command. These are a bit simplified to be appropriate for the young adult market the books are written for. If you'd like to order the books themselves, one online source is John Berg at The Sea Room. Alternatively, order from the Publisher, Royal Fireworks Press, at (914) 726-4444. While I've done a bit of research, I'm sure I've made some mistakes. If you have any corrections or comments, mail me at
