On Seas Contested
The Seven Great Navies of the Second World WarBook - 2010
A team of naval historians have pooled their expertise for this definitive single-volume reference on how the major navies of World War II were organized and how they trained, operated, and fought. They provide a point-by-point evaluation on the inner workings of the navies of the United States, the United Kingdom, the British Commonwealth, Japan, Germany, Italy, France, and the Soviet Union. Each Navy has its own chapter with such key features as weaponry, training, logistics, and doctrine. In bringing together data buried in specialized works in various languages, the authors deliver a fresh, multi-national view of the naval war.
