Since World War II, the nature of sea battles, and of warships, has changed dramatically, reflecting profound changes in the world at large. This book offers a close-up look at what these changes entail, and how they have come into play in regional conflicts in Southeast Asia, in escalating naval hostilities between the Soviet Bloc and the West, and in skirmishes and major engagements in our day. Here are the warships of the Korean conflict, and the larger Cold War that paralyzed much of the world for forty-six years; here are the vertical takeoff and landing aircraft, which, coupled with the new, smaller aircraft carrier, allowed for a nimbler, more flexible force that could respond to the political brushfires of recent years; and here is the aircraft carrier of the twenty-first century, a military city on the sea.

 

With detailed pictures and text, Modern Warships tracks the role of warships in a world of increasingly littoral naval conflict, where small nations can possess increasingly advanced technology and super-power dominance has declined. An invaluable resource for the military and naval historian, with many images appearing for the first time, the book offers a unique vantage point on today’s maritime affairs.

Book Description:

Modern Warships tracks the role of warships since WWII, a world where small nations can possess increasingly advanced technology and super-power dominance has declined. With the warships of the Korean conflict, and the larger Cold War that paralyzed much of the world for forty-six years; the vertical takeoff and landing aircraft, which, coupled with the new, smaller aircraft carrier, allowed for a nimbler, more flexible force; and the aircraft carrier of the twenty-first century, this is an invaluable resource for the military and naval historian. Many images appear for the first time, offering a unique vantage point on today’s maritime affairs.

From the Back Cover:

Modern Warships is an illustrated overview of worldwide modern day navies since World War II. The modern warship fleet has changed significantly in the past sixty years, and in particular following the demise of the Soviet Union. Those changes in both equipment and emphasis are highlighted in this unique and handy book. Many of the images appear here for the first time, and provide a unique vantage point on today’s naval and maritime affairs.
