I like this title, a lot! It’s absolutely ideal for anyone with an interest in modern day naval activity across the globe. The images are numerous and highly motivating to get you building one of the many naval vessels featured for which there are scale models available.

Now moving into its second decade, The Seaforth World Naval Review 2020 provides an affordable yet authoritative summary of global naval developments over the past twelve months. Regional surveys of fleet evolution and procurement by editor Conrad Waters are supplemented by in-depth articles from a range of subject experts focusing on significant new warships, technological advances and specific navies.
Features in this edition include in-depth coverage of the US Navy’s Virginia class submarines, the Royal Navy’s Tide class tankers and the Indian P28 Komorto class corvettes. Technological subjects include assessments of recent developments in submarine technology by Norman Friedman, whilst David Hobbs’ usual review of naval aviation focusses on the F35 Lightning II. The in-depth fleet reviews look at Finland and Germany and analyse how they are responding to the increased Russian threat.
Now firmly established as providing the only annual naval overview of its type, The Seaforth World Naval Review is essential reading for anyone – whether enthusiast or professional – interested in contemporary maritime affairs.
