'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 The acclaimed series involved a major revaluation of published information and the wide scale use of unpublished sources.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 covers the years 1906-1921 from the epoch making launch of HMS Dreadnought to the Washington Naval Treaty, a period which saw the first Great Power arms race. The period was essentially the heyday of the battleship, but its supremacy was already being challenged by primitive aircraft carriers and the first effective submarines. Despite widespread interest in the First World War it remains a surprisingly little known era of naval history; using reliable modern sources and research this volume provides a complete and highly detailed appraisal of each navy and its warships.
