Illustrated Directory of Warships of the World by David Miller, D. M. Miller
Covering every major warship type from the American ironclads of the 1860s through today's super-sophisticated aircraft carriers, this fact-filled directory describes more than 200 fighting vessels, providing technical specifications along with development and service histories. Intricately detailed full-color drawings vividly bring the warships to life, while contemporary photographs depict the vessels at sea and in combat.
David Miller is a former officer in the British armed forces, who served in the Falklands campaign, Germany, Netherlands, Malaysia and Singapore.
