If you do not own the previous edition, then there can be no question you should acquire this book; and the same holds true if you have it. This book and the author have an immense reputation, and I choose not to dwell on it, and comment only on this edition.
There are additional photographs; in addition, the photos included in the earlier editions have been enhanced. There is much more contrast and resolution; they have been digitalized whereas the previous were converted by analog dot "screens" since photostatic contrast was TOO great, although some shots lose much of the atmosphere of the older ones and are of less artistic value. There is no question the informational value has been enhanced. I also cannot overemphasize the interest of the previously unpublished images.
The they reprinted it. With additions. For a great price. I bought it as soon as I saw it on Amazon. I haven't regretted it yet. The book is everything I hoped it would be, with attention to detail equalling that of his first book. Money well spent, and I love the book.
My only complaint for the book is the large line drawings of ships were have been better served with a foldouts. Other then that, the book is a fantastic collection of information. Now I only hope someone writes a similar book about German dreadnoughts.
