Naval warfare - and the weapons used to conduct it – has changed greatly since World War I. Sea battles are no longer dominated by large battleships, but by even larger aircraft carriers. Ships have been relegated to floating missile platforms. Containing full- color artworks and action photographs, Sea Combat is a comprehensive guide to how the ships, submarines and naval weapons that have been developed since the outbreak of World War I have fought their battles. All of the best known naval encounters are described, from the battle of Jutland to the sinking of the Bismarck, the battle of Midway, the Cold War standoff, the sinking of the Belgrano, and the attack on the USS Cole. Sea Combat is an authoritative guide to the tactics and stratagems used on the high seas from 1914 to the present day.

Review:

"a good summary of the significant events of Sea Combat over the last 100 years and well illustrated throughout." (Military Modelling)

“This fascinating new book includes detailed text about sea bound conflicts, ground invasion support and aircraft deployment. Historical and modern day photographs of key conflicts, ships, water defenses and weaponry accompanied by maps, charts and schematics bring the full scope of military sea power to life.” (Boyce McClain’s Collectors’ Corner)
