An international team of naval historians and scholars has pooled their expertise for this definitive reference on how the great navies of World War II were organised 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 and Commonwealth, Japan, Germany, Italy, France, and the Soviet Union. Each navy has its own chapter, which covers such key features as weaponry, training, logistics, and doctrine. In bringing together data buried in specialised works in various languages, the authors deliver a fresh, multinational view of the naval war.
