Here is an excellent and very informative guide to the vessels and weapons of the Royal British Navy fleet. The publication opens with the comprehensive review of the Royal Navy which is then followed by the several sections where the author details the fleets of the Royal Navy and Auxiliary, together with the support vessels being operated under the contract.

The content of the book is also covering the Army and Royal Mariners, giving some overview of the Border Force. The text of the publication is featuring wealth of the technical and other information and is supplemented with the numerous color images for each of the vessels of this class; the book is also offering its readers the class listings and technical specifications of all the vessels addressed, their silhouettes and pennant numbers, plus some brief notes.

The publication is concluding with a listing of the vessels that are preserved within the UK and operating after decommissioning in secondary roles, plus the summary of the ships which were scrapped. We would definitely recommend the present book by Steve Bush to all people with the interest in naval warfare, and particularly in the warfare of the British Navy fleet as they will find all required information in a single volume.
