"Now firmly established as an authoritative but affordable summary of all that has happened in the naval world in the previous twelve months, this annual combines 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 importance 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. Features of this edition include an analysis of the Republic of Korea Navy and the response to its aggressive northern neighbour. Significant Ships will cover the USN s revamped Arleigh Burke class destroyer design, German F125 class frigates, and the RNZN s Otago class offshore patrol vessels. There are also technological reviews dealing with naval aviation by David Hobbs, RN missile programmes by Richard Scott, while Norman Friedman turns his attention to new generation weapons technology."--Publisher's description.

What is the purpose of navies in the modern world, and what types of warship does this require? This book tackles these questions by looking at naval developments, both technological and operational, in the quarter century since the end of the Cold War. It provides the overall political and economic context, assesses significant naval operations from the first Gulf War to Russia’s annexation of Crimea, reviews changes in the objectives and composition of the principal fleets, describes major design developments amongst the main warship types, and examines wider technological and operational developments, including naval aviation, shipbuilding and manning.

A Tale Of Two Navies

This book describes and analyses in hitherto unexplored ways the unique relationship of the United States Navy and the Royal Navy as exemplars of the US-UK “Special Relationship” in the context of strategy, operations, technology, and intelligence. A continuous thread of 55 years of maritime strategic planning and execution is examined within the challenges and changes of a dynamic period in which the shared national self-interests and inherent values of the United States and the United Kingdom were exemplified by the United States and Royal Navies. This book is a discursive analysis of selective key themes rather than a definitive history - a discourse between the author and readers, with lessons learned - and letting the past not be prologue, rather to anticipate change and formulate future endeavors based on a didactic interchange between the past, the present, and the foreseeable future, that now witnesses the growth of Chinese naval power and the re-emergence of a Russian Navy, and other pressing serious international challenges. Political will and funding for a maritime strategy are examined in the light of past, current, and emerging threats, while not replicating in any shape or form what is easily available elsewhere. This book contributes and stimulates in the non-quantifiable domains that relate to the question why, and those themes where the author has unique knowledge and insight that offers sound guidance in hitherto unexamined and highly relevant areas that have seen little or no light, from the high level institutional and organizational aspects of political-military decision making down to the effects of hugely significant technical changes that in due course impact policy making and operations. The readers are presented with questions as this study unfolds – for example - how should we best exploit emerging technologies for the strategic and tactical benefit of both navies and that fit optimally the national security needs of the US and UK? This book is about naval thinking – its impact at every level of naval activity and interaction with national defense in its many complexities - providing a framework for thinking through where both navies need to go in the future and why, and perhaps most of all how to steer a successful course through what is often a minefield of opponents, who do not always grasp the basics of maritime strategy. The book provides thought provoking guidance and stimulation – a thoughtful dialogue with each reader to individually and collectively contribute to the debate and actions that need to be taken in order to keep both countries naval strategies deeply rooted and focused on well-reasoned fact, intellectual integrity, and rigor. This book aims to provide a bedrock experience that can help shape the future. This book is singular in its field - with new material, insights, and analysis - presented in a dialogue format to challenge the reader to think and consider - not tell - to relate the facts, analyze, and draw conclusions. However, the abiding conclusion of this book is the critical and enduring need for a US-UK joint maritime strategy now and for the future, and how this may evolve. The unique presentation of US-UK naval strategy, plans, policies, program, operations, and intelligence over the 55 year period presents the reader with new approaches and angles, particularly regarding the Special Intelligence relationship, that the two navies represent. The book exemplifies and challenges thought regarding the crown jewels of naval strategy - without hyperbole the book takes the thinking of past writers to a new level of not just information, but conceptual thinking that ensures the future need for, and dominance, of naval strategy.

This new work tells the compelling story of how the Royal Navy secured the strategic space from Egypt in the west to Australasia in the East through the first half of the Second World War; it explains why this contribution, made while Russia's fate remained in the balance and before American economic power took effect, was so critical. Without it the war would certainly have lasted longer and decisive victory might have proved impossible. After the protection of the Atlantic lifeline, this was surely the Royal Navy's finest achievement, the linchpin of victory. The book moves authoritatively between grand strategy, intelligence, accounts of specific operations, and technical assessment of ships and weapons. It challenges established perceptions of Royal Navy capability and will change the way we think about Britains role and contribution in the first half of the war. The Navy of 1939 was stronger than usually suggested and British intelligence did not fail against Japan. Nor was the Royal Navy outmatched by Japan, coming very close to a British Midway off Ceylon in 1942. And it was the Admiralty, demonstrating a reckless disregard for risks, that caused the loss of Force Z in 1941. The book also lays stress on the key part played by the American relationship in Britains Eastern naval strategy. Superbly researched and elegantly written, this new book adds a hugely important dimension to our understanding of the war in the East and will become required reading.

From the shelling of the fort at Westerplatte, on the Polish coast, on 1 September 1939, to the loss of thousands of German refugees at sea in May 1945, the Baltic witnessed continuous and ferocious fighting throughout the Second World War. In this new book the author chronicles the naval warfare and merges such major events as the siege of Leningrad, the Soviet campaign against Sweden in 1942, the three wars in Finland 193944, the Soviet liberation of the Baltic states, the German evacuation of two million people from the East, and the Soviet race westwards in 1945. There are also included fascinating insights into, until now, poorly understood topics such as Swedish cooperation with Germany, the use of the Baltic by the Germans to train U-boats crews for the battle of the Atlantic, the secret weapons trials in the remote area of Peenmnde, and the RAF mining campaign that did much to reduce the threat of new and revolutionary German submarine technology. Furthermore, the author explains how messages from Bletchley Park were the basis for the RAF attacks on German coastal regions. The political and military backgrounds of the war in this theater are explained while the details of ships, radar, artillery, mines and aircraft are all covered. This is a superbly researched work which shows how the naval war in the Baltic shaped WWII in ways that have not been fully understood. It is a major contribution to the naval history of this era.

In both World Wars there arose a pressing need for merchant tonnage both to supplement existing ships but, more importantly, to replace ships that had been sunk by enemy action, and the key to the Allied strategy in both wars was a massive programme of merchant shipbuilding. This need gave rise to a series of standard designs with increasing emphasis on prefabrication and a progression towards welded hulls. This new book tells the remarkable story of the design and construction of the many types that not only contributed to their country’s war efforts, but were also responsible for a cultural change in world shipbuilding that would lay the foundations for the post-war industry. The story begins in the First World War with the National type cargo ships which were the first examples of prefabricated construction. The best known of all types of wartime standard ships, of course, were the Liberty ships and their successor, the better equipped Victory ships, both built in the United States. Some 2,700 Liberty ships were built and this incredible achievement undoubtedly saved the Allies from losing the War. In Canada, the Ocean and Park ships made a further major contribution. Germany and Japan also introduced standard merchant shipbuilding programmes during the Second World War and these are covered in detail. The many different types and designs are all reviewed and their roles explained, while the design criteria, innovative building techniques and the human element of their successful operation is covered. Some of the story has been told piecemeal in a range of diverse books and articles, a few with extensive fleet lists. However, the complete history of the twentieth century wartime-built standard merchant ship has not previously been written, so this new volume recording that history within its appropriate technical, political and military background will be hugely welcomed.
