"It is immediately clear that this book is more than a conventional atlas but somewhat less than an encyclopedia...The imagery is first class, helped by the brave choice of very high quality, rather thick paper. The author works steadily through the decades, selecting maps and illustrations along the way to best highlight the events and issues of the day." (International Journal of Maritime History
