Library Journal - Library Journal
If you need to find information on ships, aircraft, and weapons for navies worldwide, then this is a good source for you. You can search by type, name, and hull number, or compose your own query. You can search the complete disc or select an individual country. There are over 4000 photographs, some line drawings, pronunciations in 13 languages, as well as some excellent essays that discuss naval developments around the world. Characteristics and capabilities of ships, craft, aircraft, units, weapons, and sensors are displayed for easy consumption. In this edition the arrangement has changed, and ships are arranged from new to old within type. It is also notable that the Russian section has been revised and greatly expanded, based on a wealth of new official information about ships and equipment released over the past few years by Russian private and official sources. Bottom Line: A bit of a beast to load (we could not opt for a full load as it gobbles up hard drive space), but once that is accomplished it works efficiently. A necessary acquisition for history, foreign relations, and political collections.
