The launch of HMS Dreadnought in 1906 ushered in one of the most
rapid periods of warship development in history; and only ten years
after this all-big-gun, turbine-powered battleship was completed, two
entire fleets of Dreadnoughts would meet at Jutland and put the work of
the prewar designers to the ultimate test.The renowned warship author, D
K Brown, examines the development of these vessels and looks at how
wartime experience affected warship design. As well as battleships and
battlecruisers, for the first time the developmental history of smaller
vessels such as minesweepers, monitors and escort vessels, built in
direct response to wartime needs, is described, as is that of the
submarine and aircraft carrier. A detailed study is made of battle
damage, including the role played by ammunition explosions in the loss
of three British battlecruisers at Jutland. Also described are the
postwar capital ship designs, killed off by the Washington Treaty, which
are among the most fascinating might-have-beens of naval history.A
classic work again available for historians and enthusiasts, detailing
the development of all those ships that enabled the Royal Navy to rule
the waves supreme and defend country and empire.
