Warship 2010 is the 32nd volume in a series of naval annuals that goes back to 1977. The first 12 volumes were collections of 4 quarterly journals; Warship 1989 began the present hardcover annual format.
The 208 page volume is composed of 11 in depth articles, a notes section of shorter features, an "A & A" (additions and alterations) section with readers comments on previous articles, a section on book reviews, and a pictorial section.
All that is not excellent is very good indeed. The outstanding features to my mind are the articles which are usually an eclectic mix. This year there are more than the usual number of articles dealing with French and Japanese ships including one that deals with ships the Japanese purchased from the French. The outstanding article this year, in my humble opinion, was the one on the PA16, France's prewar carrier design. Lest one get the idea that only "rivet counters" are catered for there are fine articles on Jellicoe's deployment at Jutland and the evolution of French fire control techniques.
One of the consistently outstanding features are the book reviews - 18 pages of 34 in depth reviews. Year after year I find books that I would never have heard of otherwise or books I wouldn't have been inclined to purchase otherwise. Rarely is there a review that I disagree with, either immediately or subsequently, but there was one this year. I found the review of "Japanese Hybrid Warships" too generous.
In my review of Warship 2009 I said "One of the features I could easily do without is "World Navies in Review 2008." It's fine for what it is but for my tastes it's out of place in a book that is largely historical in focus." Apparently other readers were of the same opinion because it has been replaced by an additional article about current ships. This year European air defense frigates were compared and contrasted. Great stuff.
I look forward to the release of Warship every year. It is to be hoped that they will continue for many years to come. Highly recommended for all naval buffs.
