The book starts with a "no-holds-barred" review of the current state of the Royal Navy followed by sections detailing the fleets of the Royal Navy, Royal Fleet Auxiliary, and the support vessels operated under contract. Also included are the vessels of the Royal Marines, Army, and the Border Force. Featuring color imagery for each ship class, this volume also offers silhouettes, class listings, pennant numbers, technical specifications, brief notes. The book concludes with a listing of ships preserved within the United Kingdom and operating in a secondary role after decommissioning, as well as a summary of vessels which have been scrapped since publication of the previous edition.

Review Text

  • By Sophocles on 14 May 2017

    My sister and I are 'ship-watchers' (we live near The Solent). Needed something to help us identify the naval ships that we see. This includes silhouettes, which we were looking for, albeit that they are a tad smaller than we would have liked (our eyesight isn't as good as it was). But all-in-all, a very useful book and small enough to carry around.

    This is a nice little book, but it could easily have more information in it. It lacks endurance (range) of vessels and cargo/carrying capacities, especially the auxillaries that carry supplies for the RN.It's a nice compact collection of todays RN, but you can get more information from reliable sources online if you are interested in a specific ship.

    VERY GOOD book to read about the UK navy and shows how bad it is being let down by the UK Gov !

    Small but perfectly formed...but then that's the Royal Navy today (unfortunately).
