Your tax-deductible gift to the Naval Institute Press underwrites worthy books that might not otherwise be published.
Universally known as the Colledge, this valuable reference is the automatic starting point for research on Royal Navy ships. First published in 1970, it has been revised four times to keep it thoroughly up to date. Anyone wanting information about any British warship since the fifteenth century should turn to this book first. Each entry gives concise details of dimensions, armament, and service dates, and its alphabetical and chronological arrangement makes it easy to track down the right ship and avoid any confusion caused by the navy's tradition of re-using names. This fourth revision, published in one volume, reintroduces material omitted in the previous edition. Even numbered Coastal Forces craft have been restored, resulting in a single-volume listing of all significant vessels.
