Section 1 :-  Books containing a similar theme to the "Navyphotos" website. ( Collections of Photographs, ship types, etc.)

Over the years that my site has been active I have often been asked why I do not include summaries of the various ships activities.
The main reason why I do not do so is down to my having insufficient knowledge of the subject to do it justice.
Therefore I would prefer to leave the task to those who have much greater knowledge than I, and, judging by the quality of the various books available,
a few of which I have showcased below, much greater resources.
I recommend all of the books shown, and I feel that you will obtain as much enjoyment and information from them as I have.
Most of them also include excellent "Potted Histories" ( to quote Mr. Mike Critchley, many of whose books I feature here ).

Section 2 :-  Books dealing with specific ships, or types of vessel.

I would like to apologize to my sites visitors at this point as it was my original intention for these two following sections
to be complete, and separate, as their section headings suggest.
However, as this part of my site has developed, I have found that there often is a quite "blurred" demarcation between them.
I have done my best to keep to the separations as originally intended, but the more books I feature the more difficult it seems to become.
I hope this does not detract from your enjoyment.
