The past fifty years have witnessed some remarkable changes in the naval world: big gun warships have been discarded and then have come back into favour; and amphibious capabilities have grown in importance. But the most important single factor has been technology – missile development, electronics, communications, computers, metallurgy – all these things have had far-reaching effects. This book traces these developments, in their evolutionary and revolutionary forms, with reference to all the nations that have contributed significantly to it.
