Praise
  • “Numerous stimulating and provocative observations [are] in On Seas Contested, which will be a standard reference for years to come.”—The Journal of Military History
  • “This effective collection of essays provides much detailed information on the French, German, British, Italian, Japanese, American, and Soviet navies during World War II. The range of material covered is very impressive.” —Naval History
  • “Published by the prestigious Naval Institute Press, this book is the product of an unprecedented collaboration by an international team of naval historians. . . . Excellent book. . . . The book’s multinational orientation delivers a fresh view that will be of great value as a reference source. It should be on the shelves of specialists in naval and military history as well as those generally interested in the hows and whys of the major navies in the Second World War.”—The Northern Mariner
  • “A book that breaks new ground; it is an absolute must for anyone with aspirations to be a naval historian, and a good read for those simply interested in the navies of the Second World War.” —Warship 2012
  • On Seas Contested fills a noticeable void in naval history. . . . The reader will come away with a much better understanding of the inner workings of each of the Seven Great Navies.” —Sea History
