Here are the warships of the Korean conflict, and of the larger Cold War; vertical take of and landing aircraft, which, coupled with the new, smaller aircraft carrier allow for a nimbler, more flexible force that can respond to the political brushfires of recent years; and here is the aircraft carrier of the twenty-first century, a true military city on the sea. with detailed pictures and text Modern Warships tracks the role of warships in a world of increasingly littoral naval conflict, where small nations can possess increasingly advanced technology and super-power dominance is declining.

Here is another inexpensive reference form Zenith Press. Addressing modern warships, this is an interesting title as this is one of the most up-to-date refrences on the subject in print...While you would expect that this title would be US Navy-centric , and good coverage is provided, the authros wisley overlaid the parallele developments of the former Soviet Navies, current Russian navy,a nd the naval arms of the more modern nations of the world...The title is well-illustrated and features a variety of images that I have not seen before. Definitely recommended for the modern navel enthusiast! --Cybermodeler OnlineFrom the Back Cover:
