An external-facing publication, focusing on Industry. A Global Force looks at the many varied areas of the Navy the challenges and achievements over the last year covering Strategy, Operations, People and Equipment. As well as a closer look at the Royal Navy’s Partners.

A Global Force 2012 launches at prestigious Somerset House

“A highly readable and important publication” – this was the verdict from the First Sea Lord and Chief of Naval Staff, Admiral Sir Mark Stanhope GCB OBE ADC, speaking at the launch of A Global Force 2012.

The annual title, published by Newsdesk Media on behalf of the Royal Navy, contains a wide range of informative articles explaining the ways in which the Navy is vital to the nation and the different forms of power it can project.

The publication’s broad sweep incorporates naval strategy, operations and core duties; missions in Afghanistan, the Gulf and Libya; the continued impact of the Strategic Defence and Security Review; a look at human resources and the service’s charitable causes; plus an overview of its ships, submarines and other equipment.

In his introduction to the yearbook, Sir Mark highlights the essential role that the Naval Service plays in the modern world, commenting on how it brings “a degree of certainty to a world of uncertainty” and concluding that the Navy is “a compelling expression of this country’s influence”.

The 2012 edition of the yearbook was officially launched on 5 March at Somerset House, a venue with strong naval traditions, since for nearly a century it was home to the Navy Board, the body responsible for the day-to-day running of the Royal Navy.

In attendance at the event were Royal Navy dignitaries, officials from the Ministry of Defence and invited Members of Parliament and the media.
