Seaforth World Naval Review 2012

Launched in 2009, this annual has rapidly established a reputation as an authoritative but affordable summary of all that has happened in the naval world in the previous twelve months. It combines the standing features of regional surveys with one-off major articles on noteworthy new ships and other important developments. Besides the latest warship projects, it also looks at wider issues of importance to navies, such as aviation and electronics, and calls on expertise from around the globe to give a balanced picture of what is going on and to interpret its significance.

This year special features include in-depth studies of the navies of Brazil, Australia and Pakistan, plus analyses of three significant new warship classes: the USN's advanced amphibious warfare ship Makin Island (LHD-8): Sweden's futuristic Visby class stealth corvettes; and the BAE Systems offshore patrol vessels.

Intended to make interesting reading as well as providing authoritative reference, there is a strong visual emphasis, including specially commissioned drawings and the most recently released photographs and artists' impressions. For anyone with an interest in contemporary naval affairs, whether an enthusiast or a defence professional, this annual has become required readin

nine specialists in their field have written this annual under the editorship of Conrad Waters, providing solid assurance as to the accuracy of the work. Illustration is by crisp drawings and photographs, full colour being used where available and appropriate.

The book is written at a time of challenge and excitement. The contributors have risen to the challenge and the book is informative and incisive.
