Ordinarily, either a complete review of the ships "or" the aircraft of the US Fleet would provide sufficient material for such a book as this. To include both, however, provides the reader with a complete description of just about every single aspect of the ships and aircraft in service in the US Navy at the time each edition of this book is published. What surprised me, in fact, was the detailed descriptions of some items of sensitive equipment which much surely have been "classified." For example, whilst it may be fair to say that a picture of a particular type of antennae does not reveal exactly how it works, a photograph showing the "Reverse side of a SPY-1A antennae during assembly" might appear to show too much...
How strange that in most (if not all) countries, the perimeter fences of their military airfields proclaim "The taking of Photographs is prohibited" as though secret equipment might be frequently on display. When it comes to Naval ships and Aircraft and the equipment they display, however, it's as though the sign reads "Hey Buddy, go get your camera and see what I've got!"
Those comments, however, are not a reflection of the author's work, on the contrary, they simply reinforce the simple fact that this is a most thorough review of the subject in hand.
A most thorough review.
I was sorry to read in the preface that this was Mr. Polmar last edition as author, as he is passing the torch to a younger generation. He will be missed!
