As recent events in Iraq and the South China Sea have shown, even in this airpower-dominated age a navy remains a vital asset for any country looking to project its power beyond its borders. Containing full-colour artworks and action photographs, Warships Today is a comprehensive guide to the naval vessels that are now in service around the world, from the latest American aircraft carriers to the second-hand destroyers of the South American navies. The book begins with a series of articles on warfighting at sea today before discussing each type of warship in turn, including carriers, cruisers, destroyers, submarines, minesweepers, patrol craft and supply ships, allowing the reader to compare similar vessels in service with different nations.

Accompanying the illustrations in each entry are highly detailed specifications and a design and development history of each type or class of vessel. With its accessible format, Warships Today is an authoritative guide to the high-tech ships that patrol the world’s oceans.
