Originally a 2-volume set in 1968, Volume 1 ("major warhips") has been updated up to 2006, and apparently includes some minor vessels that are "warships" - - with the original author deceased, it apppears the remainding co-author is left to carry on (w/ 40 years of naval service) and has evolved Vol. 1 into a single, prime title.

Basically, it is a list in a book -- ships names are in alphabetical order, with abbreviated info of type ("aircraft carrier"), light displacement (e.g. 22,000 tons), 2 dimensions (l & w, no draft), original armament (no cal lengths), builder (e.g. Cammell Laird), launch date, disposition (e.g. sunk 14.11.41 by U.81 off Gibraltar).

The list is arranged in 2 columns per page - - - the book is a medium format (9.5" x 6.5") hard cover -- there are NO photos, drawings or illustrations except for the cover.

For pre-20th RN navy lists, you should consider the David Lyon 2-book references (large format), but they are (very) expensive and also have no illustrations.

As a list book, "Ships" is as complete as they come and reasonable priced (when discounted), but you will have to refer to other books to get anything other than abbrev. data.

Is not really a book, with stories, photos or data about the ships. Is a huge list of the namne of the ships.

Historically, the Royal Navy has often reused ship names, and so things could get confusing (was it the 5th, 6th or the 7th Terror which was on the Franklin Expedition?). This book will help you track down which ship was which, with details on such matters as builder, lauch date, and ultimate fate. I've enjoyed simply reading through the book, discovering interesting nuggets (example: I knew that the American frigate Hancock was captured and became HMS Iris, but I hadn't known that HMS Iris was captured by the French in 1781 and then destroyed by the British at Toulon in 1793). An excellent resource for the historian and the one who siply enjoys the history of the Royal Navy.

Oh, by the way -- it was the sixth Terror on the Franklin Expedition.
  • Coiwield
It is indeed a complete record with basic data for every ship that has served in Royal Navy. An essential reference tool.
  • Quinthy
A great revised edition to Colledge's volume one.
  • Frostdefender
I was hoping that the book would be helpful with my research, but it only provided a very brief description of the ship I am interested in. Needless to say I already had the info provided by the book so it was of little help to me.
  • lets go baby
This is a great reference book for naval buffs it provides information on vessels going back in time to the 1990's maybe this will be updated in a later publication
Frankly, I expected more than a simple reference. Little more than a listing, this book is suitable for fact-checking but no discussion or insight. Very little context.
