Reviews (4)
Warship 2009 is the 31st volume in a series of naval annuals that goes back to 1977. The first 12 volumes were collections of 4 quarterly journals; Warship 1989 began the present hardcover annual format.

The 208 page volume is composed of 10 in depth articles, a notes section of shorter features, a navies in review describing naval developments of the past year, an "A & A" (additions and alterations) section with readers comments on previous articles, a section on book reviews, and a pictorial section.

All that is not excellent is very good indeed. The outstanding features to my mind are the articles which are usually an eclectic mix. For example, this year we have articles on supplying coal to the Victorian Navy and the John Brown shipyard during WWI. The outstanding article this year, in my humble opinion, was the one on the explosion aboard the Japanese battleship Mutsu in 1943.

One of the consistently outstanding features are the book reviews - 17 pages of 31 in depth reviews. Year after year I find books that I would never have heard of otherwise or books I wouldn't have been inclined to purchase otherwise.

One of the features I could easily do without is "World Navies in Review 2008." It's fine for what it is but for my tastes it's out of place in a book that is largely historical in focus.

Finally, there are eulogies to two recently deceased contributors, Daniel Harris and David K. Brown. Both will be missed.

In vol 27 (2005) the excellent work of this series is well continued. Articles cover in depth the defects of British heavy sheels in WW1 , two articles on French cruisers of post WW1 and WW2, and the topic of pumping water out of early pre-dreadnoughts.. The finest story is a personal account of a russian officer on the Russian Battleship Orel at the battle of Tsushima with the recording of the terrific damage inflicted on the ship and the effort to save it from sinking. All together another excellent book in the series.

well written,covering ships from 1855 to post ww2. Of interest were US vs. Spain at the battle of Santiago, The story of the King #Edward VII clas BB and the action in the Black Sea between the Turkish ship (Goeben) and the Russian ships in 1915. Valuable book for detailed accounts and technical insight into several classes of ships.

Warship is an annually produced compilation of articles on the design, development and service hostory of the world's combat ships. The 2005 issue is one of the most interesting volumes yet.

The first article is on the failure of British armor piercing big gun shells to pierce armor and then to fail to explode. It is surprising to me that such little details seemingly are ignored until a country goes to war, ships have sunk, and people have died. I was reminded of the failure of the American (and German) torpedoes to explode. After all the effort put into submarines, training the crew and sending them off to war, it appears that only one live test of a torpedo had been run and it had failed.

Another article is on the early steam powered torpedo boats built by the Royal Navy in the late 1800's. These definitely do not look like they would be good boats on which to serve. I had seen pictures of them before but the article goes into things like sea keeping, and life on board as well as more technical details on the ships.

The articles in this book are not short, averaging something over a dozen pages. Annual columns reviewing the navies of the world, a gallery of pictures and others take up about a quarter of the book.

As usual, this is a fascinating book. It brings up points of history that aren't seen very often. It's very very well written. Highly recommended to any interested person.
