'Conway’s All The World’s Fighting Ships' series presents an international history of iron and steel warships from the first ironclad to the modern warship. The acclaimed series involved a major revaluation of published information and the wide scale use of unpublished sources. Every ship is covered, type by type and class by class and the series places the detailed and precise data of the ships into the wider context through introductions and extended texts allowing the reader to trace important technical and design developments and understand how and when naval developments took place. The text is complemented by photographs and/or accurate scale drawings for most classes included. This volume lists all the significant warships built between the Washington Treaty and the end of the wartime construction programmes.
