Seaforth World Naval Review 2014
Since its launch 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.
Special features for this year include a survey of current and future torpedo developments, an in-depth study of the Royal New Zealand Navy, a look at how the Royal Navy is coping after the Strategic Defense and Security Review, plus analyses of significant new warship classes: the Japanese Hyuga class DHH concept, the USNS Spearhead Joint Hish-Speed Vessels, Danish Iver Huitfeldt class frigatees, and German AIP technology as demonstrated in the recent Type 212A submarines.
For anyone with an interest in contemporary naval affairs, whether an enthusiast or a defence professional, this annual has become required reading.
