Covering major warship types from all navies since the American ironclads of 1860, to present day super-sophisticated aircraft carriers, this fact-packed directory describes more than 200 powerful fighting vessels, giving technical specifications, development history and performance in wartime where relevant. Intricately detailed full-colour artworks by well-known military illustrator, Tony Gibbons, vividly bring the warships to life, while contemporary photographs show the vessels in action.
David Miller is a former serving officer in the armed forces, with extensive tours of duty as far afield as the Falkland Islands, Europe and the Far East. He is former Editor of Jane's Major Surface Warships, staff journalist for the International Defence Review, and author of many very successful titles on naval vessels, weapons and history.
