From the publisher:

This annual has a reputation as an authoritative but affordable summary of all that has happened in the naval world in the previous 12 months. It combines regional surveys with one-off major articles on noteworthy new ships and other important developments. Besides the latest warship projects, it also looks at wider issues of importance to navies, such as aviation and electronics, and calls on expertise from around the globe to give a balanced picture of what is going on and to interpret its significance.

This edition features an in-depth analysis of the Royal Netherlands Navy; a look at the U.S. Navy’s radical new Zumwalt-class destroyers; the Republic of Korea’s amphibious assault ship Dokdo; and the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force’s Akizuki-class destroyers (and others). There are also technological reviews dealing with naval aviation by David Hobbs (with a focus on the present state of the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm), while Norman Friedman surveys naval surface-to-surface missiles.
The World Naval Review is intended to make interesting reading as well as providing authoritative reference, so there is a strong visual emphasis, including specially commissioned drawings and the most up-to-date photographs and artists’ impressions. For anyone with an interest in contemporary naval affairs.

FSM says:
A guide to modern navies and their place in the world. Exciting color photography of the Zumwalt-class destroyer.
