From the cover: While the design and service histories of warships are well covered in print, until now there has been no single-volume guide to the companies and state yards which built them. This encyclopaedic new work fills that gap, with concise biographies of the shipbuilders, describing their corporate development, highlights in their histories, and listing the major ships they built. International in coverage, the book is divided by country, by region and by yard, and is illustrated throughout with maps and plans showing the locations of the builders and the ground layout of the most important shipyards at significant dates in their history. The book also includes details of naval bases and repair facilities, while a general introduction points out the salient features of warship development over three centuries, from wood and canvas to the technology of steam, steel and electronics in order to explain the changes in the worlds shipbuilding industries. This comprehensive guide has a place on the bookshelf of any naval historian or enthusiast.
