About this title

Synopsis:

David Brown examines the development of British warships up to 1914, the responses to the demands of the First World War, and finally how the lessons of wartime experience affected warship development in the immediate postwar period. 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.

About the Author:

D.K. Brown was a distinguished naval architect who retired in 1988 as Deputy Chief Architect of the Royal Corps of Naval Constructors. He published widely on the subject of warship design and built a reputation as a clear and brilliant commentator on the development of the ships of the Royal Navy. He died in 2008.
