Book by Hamilton, John
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
At first glance just another lavishly illustrated oversized book, War at Sea is instead a collection of 176 full-color paintings of naval combat coupled with a readable and well-organized text. Hamilton is a preeminent maritime artist whose work is as worthwhile for its evocative atmosphere of sea warfare as for its superb technical accuracy. The text is more than the usual filler found in many large-format books, and instead is a reasonably detailed yet entertaining overview of the war's major seaborne actions. This is supplemented by 43 imaginative maps, most useful for lay strategists. General public library patrons should like this. Literary Guild and Military Book Club alternates. Raymond L. Puffer, U.S. Air Force History Prog., Los Angeles
