Britain as Russia Looks to the Sea by Andre Deutsch Limited. From the DJ: This is a full examination of the history, scope, and momentum of the Soviet Union's vast, complex effort to achieve worldwide naval supremacy. On the military side the author makes comparisons with the United Stats, and the new Russian fleet is indeed impressive. The Soviets have concentrated on relatively fast surface vessels and particularly on submarines. Their yards are now capable of producing twenty nuclear submarines a year. This book gives tables of the numbers of vessels in all combat categories for the U. S. A., the United Kingdom, and the U. S. S. R In 1969 the average age of American navy ships was over 17 years; with almost 60% of combat units over 20 years old, but less than 1% of Russia's warships was this old.
