From Baird Maritime:
An annual publication, an important annual since 1989, this has become an authoritative source of both naval history and naval news.
The 2010 edition is of the usual high quality. It contains the usual wide range of new and old material. All very well illustrated and tightly edited.
There are excellent well-researched essays on a wide range of major warships; the Admiralty’s floating docks; the Taranto raid; French built Japanese warships; modern air defence escorts; centralised fire control; and, some fascinating warship notes. Finally, there are reviews of a number of the best books on warships published during the year.
Anyone interested in any way in warships of any kind will find much to interest them here.
