-- from the dust jacket

The destructive power of warships has increased dramatically since the end of World War II. The big gun has been superseded by the carrier-launched aircraft armed with bombs and torpedoes.

Firepower: Sea Warfare offers a comprehensive overview of the dominant naval groups; organised by ship type, it features fast attack craft, naval fighters, ballistic missile submarines, supercarriers, amphibious assault craft, light carriers and battleships. For each group is given a weapons and ship inventory as well as full details of deployment, combat techniques and tactics used. The descriptions are brought to life with first-hand accounts from officers who have served on each type of craft.

Firepower: Sea Warfare is packed with information presented in the most accessible way: there are specification tables on specific craft, diagrams showing weapon deployment, full-colour artworks displaying the features of particular vessels and gatefold pages providing special large-format illustrations of seven ships.
