Book Description

17 Oct 2013 Seaforth World Naval Review
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. Next year's edition will look in detail at the Royal New Zealand Navy and at the Royal Navy three years after the SDSR (Strategic Defence and Security Review), while significant ships will include the Danish Iver Huitfeldt class frigate, the German 212A class submarine and the US JHSV Spearhead. There are technological reviews dealing with naval aviation and current and recent torpedo developments.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 reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Want to know what is going on? 9 Feb 2014
The list of contributors to this work is impressive by any standards. Not only are they from different countries, they bring to the work some very different areas of expertise and equally divers perspectives. Their combined experiences includes naval service, ship building, the development of electronic defence systems, an FAA pilot, a BAE systems engineer, a freelance maritime correspondent, a director of Gryphon Technologies, a British barrister and, in the form of American Norman Friedman, one of the most respected naval historians in the world. The one central thread which binds them all together is, of course, their passion for ships and it is, therefore, safe to say that the technical accuracy of this work is sound. It only remains for me to provide a reader’s insight - based on my own, albeit very different, experience of ships in general.

I am a dedicated shipwreck historian. As such, I get all my facts and figures about ship (and occasionally aircraft) wrecks from every imaginable source. Of these, Jane’s has always been the benchmark for such information. Sadly, accessing these works is not easy - the latest editions retail at over 700 each and have become, therefore, even too expensive for local libraries.

By complete - and very welcome, contrast, this work does not seek to mention each and every ship in service and then repeat much of that information year after year for as long as they remain so. Instead it provides a academic review of what has happened during the previous 12 months and has produced this valuable information every year since its inception in 2009. All things considered, this book is considerable value for money.

Divided into four Sections, we commence with a hugely informative ‘Overview’ before getting down to specifics.

Plenty of information on the Navies of different regions of the world. Photos are mostly black and white, but of a good quality. Some ships are featured over a few pages and these photo's are in colour. I'm looking forward to the next edition.

The 2014 edition of the Seaforth World Naval Review is another high quality, well written and edited insight into naval matters around the world. The ship spotlight features are particularly interesting. Definitely worth a purchase if you have the previous editions. This series is shaping up to be the best source reference material for its subject.
