Now celebrating its tenth edition, World Naval Review provides an affordable but yet authoritative summary of global naval developments over the past 12 months. Regional surveys of fleet evolution and procurement by editor Conrad Waters are supplemented by in-depth articles from a range of subject experts focusing on significant new warships, technological advances and specific navies.

Features in this edition include extended reviews of the new aircraft carriers USS Gerald R. Ford and HMS Queen Elizabeth, the largest ships ever to serve in their respective fleets. Technological subjects include assessments of naval communications by Norman Friedman and autonomous systems by Richard Scott, whilst David Hobbs’ usual review of naval aviation is expanded to include a broader analysis of key trends over the last decade. Meanwhile, reviews of specific fleets focus on the navies of Canada, Peru and Singapore, all medium-sized naval powers at critical – if very different – phases of their development.

Firmly established as providing the only annual naval overview of its type, World Naval Review is essential reading for anyone – whether enthusiast or professional – interested in contemporary maritime affairs.

For anyone interested in contemporary naval affairs, whether you're a defense professional enthusiast or warship modeller this illustrated annual is required reading.

Model Boats, February 2019 – reviewed by John Deamer

Now in its tenth year, the Review is rightly recognised as an authoritative summary of global naval developments over the past 12 months. As well as regional surveys, important articles from various experts are offered, such as an assessment in this latest volume (which I found of particular interest) of modern naval communications by Norman Friedman. Essential reading for anyone – enthusiast or professional – interested in contemporary maritime affairs.

Julian Stockwin Blog

Seaforth's excellent and absorbing World Naval Review, is packed with up to-date, in-depth analysis of ten of the worlds major sea-powers; with illustrations, photographs, and reviews the balance of naval power globally. This excellent book reviews regional naval developments, examines the design history and construction of America's 'Ford' a {CVN-78} Class Aircraft Carrier and Britain's new Monarch of the Seas, 'The Queen Elizabeth', the Royal Navy's largest-ever warship.

Its technical reviews, examine recent developments in maritime air-power, potential pitfalls of naval communications and explores the work underway to develop a new generation of robotic warships.

For naval enthusiast the book is a page turner.
