Warships After London : The End of the Treaty Era in the Five Major Fleets 1930-1936
by John Jordan




Overview -
Warships After London examines warship developments in the five major navies during the period 1930-1936. Long-term plans were disrupted, and new construction had to be reviewed in the light of the Treaty of London. The imposition of new quantitative limits for cruisers, destroyers and submarines led to new, often smaller designs, and a need to balance unit size against overall numbers within each of the categories. As ships produced under these restrictions were the newest available when war broke out in 1939, this book is a major contribution to understanding the nature of the navies involved. Its value is enhanced by well-chosen photographs and specially prepared line drawings showing the overall layout, armament, protection and propulsion of the ships laid down during the period.
