For over 40 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 with which Warship has become synonymous.
