Comments: This fantastic new book describes all of Australia’s men-o-war from the inception of the Commonwealth Naval Forces in 1901, renamed as the Royal Australian Navy in 1911.

Included are all manner of vessels that have served Australia over the last 110 years from purpose-built warships through to the small and numerous requisitioned ships, with detailed descriptions of the development of individual warship types and classes, supported by numerous data tables and colour and black-and-white illustrations.

Australia’s Fighting Ships – A Century of War and Peace also examines the Navy of the future. This new fleet will be a well-balanced force of modern guided missile destroyers and new-generation frigates, subs and a strong amphibious force.

The hard cover version contains an extra 16 pages with 29 pictures.
