The book "Sea War 1939-1945" ("History of the sea battles of 1939-1945 in photographs") is unique. The enormous work of the author - to collect scattered photographs of various most important sea battles in various parts of the world, to put everything in the form of a narrative, providing facts and documents - deserves the deepest respect. In this book are collected, perhaps, almost all available photos of battles on the sea during the Second World War. For the first time the war is shown through the eyes of all the parties involved. This is a real find for every researcher of world military history.
