By D. K. Brown (Author)

In this book, the sequel to the highly acclaimed Warrior to Dreadnought, renowned warship author D. K. Brown brings his knowledge and experience as a warship designer to the story of the Royal Navy's development of World War I warships and the influence of that conflict on future warship design. The launch of HMS Dreadnought in 1906 ushered in one of the most rapid periods of warship development in history, and only ten years after this all-big-gun, turbine-powered battleship was completed, two entire fleets of Dreadnoughts would meet at Jutland and put the work of the prewar designers to the ultimate test.
