Hailed as the most extensive photographic record of the naval side of World War II ever produced when published in the U.K., this book is a must for anyone interested in the naval history of that war. From Robert Capa's images of the mayhem on Omaha Beach to the amateur photography of a serviceman on board a destroyer, the collection offers a moving and informative look at all theaters. The introduction of the 35-mm camera and the easing of censorship allowed photographers to get close to the action for unflinching images of combat and the catastrophic consequences of war as never before. The book's 250 photographs cover all aspects of the war at sea, from the scuttling of the Graf Spee to the moment of impact of a kamikaze aboard ship, and rank with the best of the genre.
