Contributions from leading writers on naval matters, edited ably by Conrad Waters. 
The number of annuals addressing naval matters has shrunk over the years but, 
happily, this excellent annual continues to thrive and grow its readership.

The successful established format has been followed once again, breaking into 
national sections. There are first class photographs, including a number of full colour. 
The Royal Navy's Queen Elizabeth Class super carriers feature again as their air 
groups achieve Operational Capability with the Merlin helicopter and F35 STOVL 
fighter. Littoral Combat Vessels continue to produce news and the Significant Warship 
section this year features the USN Virginia Class nuclear submarines.

All the important news of 2019 into 2020. Some of the forecast developments may be 
delayed because this annual was produced before the full impact of the Chinese 
Wuhan 19 pathogen is known. As the global pandemic is brought under control and 
national economies start to recover, there is likely to be a major resetting of the way 
the rest of the world treats China and this will have several major impacts on naval 
developments and operations. Economists are forecasting a major depression to 
match the Great Depression that preceded an arms race and World War Two. That is 
still conjecture and the recession due to widespread lock-downs of economies may not 
be as deep, or as prolonged, as forecast. It will however produce some major resetting 
of the way that the World treats China, with also a possible fragmentation of the 
European Union and the establishment of a new free trade area based around North 
America and the Commonwealth. What currently looks like a disaster may turn out to 
be a great opportunity to reset the free world and provide a new naval era.
