Cold War Fleet is a selection of photographs of Royal Navy vessels from the 25 years from 1966 to 1991. Each is reproduced at an exceptionally high standard, accompanied by a detailed caption. Many of the photos are completely unique and have never been published, such as the images of the minesweepers HMS Wilton and HMS Bossington photographed during Operation Rheostat in 1974. There are many ships displayed that took part in the Falklands conflict and a large number of aerial photographs.

Created by two of the most acclaimed naval photographers in the world, this stunning book is a window back in time to the Royal Navy of the Cold War, showing a fleet created to defend Britain and other NATO countries from Soviet attack. Featuring every kind of ship from aircraft carriers and destroyers to auxiliary vessels, this is a peerless resource for any enthusiast of naval history.

Clive and Sue Taylor have been photographing naval shipping for more than 45 years and were arguably the top photographers in the field of naval photography. They contributed to Janes Fighting Ships and most of the professional magazines. They also supplied photos to the Naval Intelligence services of the US Navy, the German Navy, and the Japanese Maritime Self Defence Force (with the knowledge and co-operation of the MOD). Aerial photography, both in privately chartered and MOD/NATO facilitated aircraft was a specialty of theirs. They live in Warwickshire, UK.

Reviews for Cold War Fleet: Ships of the Royal Navy 1966-91 A Photographic Album

All I've got is huge praise for this. The quality is exceptional, it is a fabulous title, and if you are remotely interested in the Royal Navy, in naval vessels, or in the Cold War, this has got a huge amount to offer and is highly recommended. * Geoff Coughlin, Scale Modelling Now * This book is great fun to browse and reminisce and it certainly gives a nostalgic view of the Royal Navy in its post war heyday. * Warship World *
