Warship is a celebrated annual publication featuring the latest research on history, development, and service of the world's warships.
For 45 years, Warship has been the leading annual resource on the design, development, and deployment of the world's combat ships. Featuring a broad range of articles from a select panel of distinguished international contributors, this latest volume combines original research, new book reviews, warship notes, an image gallery, and much more, maintaining the impressive standards of scholarship and research for which Warship has become synonymous. Detailed and accurate information is the keynote of all the articles, which are fully supported by plans, data tables, and stunning photographs.
The varied topics in this year's annual includes articles on the Imperial Japanese Navy carriers Soryu and Hiryu, post-war radar development in the Royal Navy, gunboats in the Imperial German Navy, Soviet battleship designs of the early Second World War, modern European frigates, and the origins of the Yokosuka naval yard.
