there's no way 100 pages can fit comprehensive information for all the fighting ships of wwii. it would not work even if there were only 100 fighting ships .. but the number is not even in the same order of magnitude. the use of small pictures is also kind of worthless .. there's not much you can see, especially in small ships like destroyers. i'd liked a lot more to have 2 way drawings, but there's only one.
the book is good in trying to keep an account of all the ships involved, but i think the result is just slightly above average. probably the target was misjudged from the beginning.
