For his latest book Colonel Roy Stanley presents aerial photographs of the German and Italian fleets that were selected as important six decades ago and have long lain dormant, unindexed and unexplained. Extensive use of aerial and other Intelligence imagery from long retired files would be enough to make this book a must for those intrigued by Second World War II intelligence and naval history. But it is the author's commentary that makes this work truly unique, thanks to his aerial photo interpretation experience, ability to provide Intelligence analysis, and academic background. Meticulously researched for ship identification, the eye of an experienced PI sees things others might miss, and the author tells us what he sees. Some of these photos may have appeared in contemporary documents but never with the insight presented in this book. We see warships under attack, at sea and in harbour as captured by photo reconnaissance. Analysis of selective enlargements adds to the understanding. Even the most devout follower of warships will learn something.

If you've read about the battles, you'll learn a lot more by studying the pictures. In this case, a picture is very definitely worth a thousand words.

This book is exactly what the cover says it is. While the pictures of the ships themselves are impressive – as were many of the ships – the action photographs of the ships being attacked and sunk are breathtaking. If you’ve read the battles, you’ll learn a lot more by studying the pictures. In this case, a picture is very definitely worth a thousand words.

Ausmarine

This book is exactly what the cover says it is. It offers a really useful addition to World War Two naval history. By the late 1930s aerial photography had become quite a refined art. The technology was advanced and in wartime, of course, no expense was spared. The contemporary reader benefits from this. While the pictures of the ships themselves are impressive – as were many of the ships – the action photographs of ships being attacked and sunk are breathtaking. If you’ve read about the battles, you’ll learn a lot more by studying the pictures. In this case, a picture is very definitely worth a thousand words.
