Successful annuals are some of the hardest books to review because 
the established readership will impatiently await each new edition 
and pay little attention to reviews. However, each year will see new 
readers joining the fan club and the reviewer has a duty to help 
them to understand why this is a book that justifies their expenditure 
in acquiring a copy.

The Seaforth Annual is one of very few books of this type to remain in 
print. The competition is fierce and the standards are all very high. 
Interestingly, the remaining naval review annuals have very little 
overlap and could be considered complementary to each other. This 
justifies the purchase of each annual as it publishes, although the 
composite cost is not for the faint hearted and will mainly be by 
professionals and very keen enthusiasts.

The Seaforth team always provide concise authoritative content with an 
outstanding selection of images, covering navies from around the world. 
An illuminating Introduction provides a most informative review of the 
year's naval trends. This year is particularly important because it 
marks the introduction of a number of new generations of warships, 
weapon systems and aircraft.

The major navies are naturally featured each year although the number 
of pages devoted to each reflects the relative activity in the past 
year. There is also coverage of the smaller navies and the general 
increase in tensions, particularly in Eastern waters, is prompting some 
of these navies to begin expansion programs.

The year is not complete without the latest Seaforth World Naval Review 
and 2017 is no exception.
