Your tax-deductible gift to the Naval Institute Press underwrites worthy books that might not otherwise be published.
Maintaining the high standards established over its thirty-three-year publishing history, this new volume of the highly regarded annual Warship includes articles on the U.S. Navy's Lexington-class battle cruiser design; the grounding and destruction of HMS Effingham in 1940; the origins of the world's first armored cruiser, Dupuy-de-Lome; the battle for Casablanca in 1942; and the impact of the capsizing of the Japanese Navy's torpedo boat Tomorzuru on subsequent design and construction.
Also presented is the second in a series of articles on modern warships by Conrad Waters that looks at the French BPSs of the Mistral class and the new HLD being built for the Spanish navy. In addition to the articles, there are more than a hundred illustrations and reviews of new books.
John Jordan, a noted naval historian and author specializing in the French and Russian navies, also edited Warship 2010.
Stephen Dent, an experienced warship scholar, also edited The War At Sea in Photographs, 1939–1945. Both reside in England.
Praise for Warship 2011
“Well-researched and covering a wide variety of naval history and architecture, these essays will be a pleasure for any naval historian looking for something between a magazine article and full-blown book.”
