A completely revised and fully-updated third edition of the most comprehensive guide to warships available to the general public.
Since the first edition of this book, published in 1996, there have been major changes to the world's navies. A new generation of warships is entering service, replacing the fleets built up during the Cold War.
This book provides technical specifications from Jane's Fighting Ships (published since 1898 and the acknowledged world leader in naval reference). The new format also allows for additional warships and information to be featured.
