4.0 out of 5 stars Overview, but overlook one or two distractions, 19 May 2011
By 
This review is from: War at Sea 1939-45: Defensive v. 1 (Official History of the Second World War) (Paperback)
This was a good overview of the war at sea, but I found that sometimes it spent more time than I wanted on the US actions. However, I really valued this series of books and learnt a lot from them. In this reprint edition, the reproduction of the maps is very poor. The originals appear to have been done in colour and these black and white versions mean that the old colour lines are faint or missing. As reproductions you will also find the odd hand-written correction. These issues disract somewhat from what are very significant historical narratives. However, for the student of naval warfare they are a "must have".

I bought the paperback version but was like the reviewer disappointed by the quality of map reproductions (and also the photgraphs). I sold them on and bought up copies of the original volumes as they came on the market. These are far better and if you are not too fussy about the appearance reasonably priced
