BOOK REVIEW: Defending Island Britain in the Second World War

By David Rogers

A most interesting, useful and, hopefully, inspiring analysis of Britain’s preparations for a threatened Nazi invasion in 1940/41. There is much of current value here for other island nations such as Australia, Japan, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, The Philippines and, of course, Britain again.

BOOK REVIEW: The Battleship USS Massachusetts

By Witold Koszela

Another “work of art” from the Kagero people of Lublin in Poland. This one comprises a series of general arrangement, profile and detail drawing of this famous and still extant warship of the Second World War.

BOOK REVIEW: Naval Archives – Volume 07

Edited by Damien Majsak

The seventh volume of this rather amazing series of 3D renderings of famous warships. This one focuses on a range covering the British battleship HMS Warspite, the American Grumman Avenger carrier aircraft, the German U 387, the multi-national Last Classic Destroyers, and The 21st Century Russian Fleet. Plenty to interest any warship history tragic.


By Arthur Murdoch

A delightful record of a pioneering seabed mining and small scale shipping activity conducted very largely by one man in Depression-era Australia.
