someone somewhere here recommended a book on modern naval tactics. I thought I ordered it at amazon, but it slipped thru my fingers.

Did this happen or am I just getting old? If it did, puh-leeeze remind me of the title!

Back during the height of the Cold War, there was a book (probably a number of them) on Modern Naval Tactics probably by that title for at least one of them (could also be Modern Naval Warfare too, I suspect), IIRC.

All sorts of details on how the USA and NATO would counter the Soviet Union, and vice versa, with their strategies, different equipment, and tactics.

Probably Wayne Hughes' book…

Also way back in the 80s there was a large format book called "Modern Naval Combat" by Chris and David Miller. David Miller was an officer in the RN.


It's really accessible with each aspect of modern 80s naval warfare explained with plenty of full colour illustrations I loved it as a kid, but then the Falklands was a very recent memory.

The Falklands is covered and the are double page spreads covering many warship designs, again with full cover illustrations.

Wholly recommended.
