Spoils of War The Fate of Enemy Fleets after the Two World Wars


Spoils of War is an important piece of research; as well as resolving many of the outstanding issues with regard to the loss of some of the vessels, approximately a third of the publication is given over to a detailed listing of the fate of each of the ships, in the navies concerned, at the end of the fighting. The entry for each vessel includes the following details: name; class, builder; launch date; completion date; allocation (at the end of the war); and fate. For each type of vessel, further tables give details of class, displacement, length, beam, installed power, speed and armament. Immaculately produced, the book is a prodigious feat!
