In Jane's Naval History of World War II, he covers all the different types of warship that fought from the Atlantic and Arctic to the Pacific Ocean. From aircraft carriers to submarines, assault ships to destroyers and cruisers, his paintings bring to life the incredible variety of warships that took part in the greatest naval conflict in history. Naval historian Bernard Ireland offers new insights to the conflict, investigating how German U-boats ultimately lost the battle of the Atlantic while US submarines annihiliated Japan's merchant navy. His own career in naval engineering enables him to reveal all sorts of hidden details that make Jane's Naval History of World War II a radical new contribution to 20th century history.
