A fascinating and extremely detailed overview of the navies of the world. Features extensive photographic documentation of the ships, aircraft carriers, planes, and submarines of the various fleets. The data section (about 150 pages) gives quite a bit of information, for example, about the type and class of the vessels, their individual names, numbers, builder, dimensions, armaments, and other detailed notes (e.g. Battleships: Montana Class: Ohio: BB68: Philadelphia Navy Yard, etc.). Included are the US Navy, the Army's Navy, the Coast Guard, and the navies of Great Britain, Canada, Australia, India, USSR, France, Italy, Germany, Japan, China, and many other smaller navies. Also included are 17 pages of the "war losses" documenting every ship lost during the war, date, and location. An incredible resource.
