For over a decade this annual has provided an authoritative summary
of all that has happened in the naval world in the previous twelve
months, combining regional surveys with one-off major articles on
noteworthy new ships and other important developments. Besides the
latest warship projects, it also looks at wider issues of
significance to navies, such as aviation and weaponry, and calls on
expertise from around the globe to give a balanced picture of what
is going on and to interpret its significance. The latest of the
in-depth 'Significant Ships' series cover the US Navy's _America_
(LHA-6) class amphibious ships; the Singaporean Independence, an
indigenous design of Littoral Mission Vessel; and the venerable
Type 23 frigate, still the mainstay of the British Royal Navy's
surface fleet. Technological subjects include an analysis of
stealth at sea by Norman Friedman, the US Standard missile family
by Richard Scott, as well as David Hobbs' regular review of naval
aviation. This year the reviews of specific fleets focus on the
navies of Sweden and Nigeria, two medium sized naval powers with
very different histories. Firmly established as the only annual
naval overview of its type, the _World Naval Review_ is essential
reading for anyone - whether enthusiast or professional -
interested in contemporary maritime affairs.
