The researcher and military enthusiast will find the book absolutely essential and the price a bargain." --The Hook

"Essential for any library desirous of maintaining comprehensive naval and national security policy collections." --American Reference Books Annual

As many people think, Jane's Fighting Ships is just too expensive. Eric Wertheim's combat fleets is far cheaper and the quality is getting very near of Jane's. This particular guide of 2007-2008 is in my oppinion an improvement over last one. I wish they published this guide every year, waiting 2 years for the next one is the only bad thing about this book.

It is as good as the Jane's that I remember from a few years ago but at a third of the price. So why spend more?
