The grand fleet : warship design and development, 1906-1922 by D. K Brown( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."--Publisher's description

Atlantic escorts : ships, weapons & tactics in World War II by D. K Brown( Book )

Winston Churchill og storadmiral Erich Raeder var enige om, at den eneste kampagne, der under den anden verdenskrig for alvor kunne true England var den tyske ubådskampagne. Også her undlod Hitler, til vestmagternes held, at lægge tyngde på grund af sine landmilitære præferencer. Dette førte til en meget lang søkrig i Nordatlanten, hvor de allierede langsomt og sikkert fik overtaget gennem anvendelsen af eskortefartøjer af alle slags. Her gennemgår forfatteren hvorledes England forsøgte at forbedre sin antiubådskapacitet gennem design og bygning af Jagere, fregatter, korvetter og patruljefartøjer. Der ses tillige på effekten af antiubådsfly. Der foretages som noget nyt effektivitetsberegninger og omkostningsanalyser og der forsøges draget endelige konklusioner om, hvad der bedst egnede sig til formålet
Rebuilding the Royal Navy : warship design since 1945 by D. K Brown( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Denne udgivelse er nr. 4 i serie om Royal Navys̀ krigsskibskonstruktion. Forfatteren var her selv skibskonstruktør og har derfor en personlig tilgang til perioden. Denne var karakteriseret ved, at den meget store men delvist udslidte engelsk flåde skulle erstattes med nye skibe i efterkrigstidsperioden. Der blev tale om hangarskibe, jagere, fregatter og ubåde, herunder både diesel- og nukleart fremdrevne samt minestrygere og logistiske enheder. Bogen der er velillustreret og seriøs afsluttes med et fremadrettet blik på de kommende hangarskibe, idet der ikke kan sættes antal på klassen. Den første skulle være klar i 2010

The road to Oran : Anglo-French naval relations, September 1939-July 1940 by David Brown( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On 3 July 1940, soon after the collapse of the French front and France's request for an armistice, a reluctant Royal Navy commander opened fire on the French Navy squadron at Mers-el-Kebir. Some 1,300 French sailors lost their lives. The driving force behind this extraordinary event was the British government's determination that the French Fleet would never fall into the hands of the Axis powers. A combination of mistrust, dissembling, poor communications and outright enmity over the preceding month had catastrophic results, both for the individuals concerned and for the future of Franco-British naval relations."
Warrior to Dreadnought : warship design and development, 1860-1905 by D. K Brown( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 50 years that separated Warrior from Dreadnought there occurred a revolution in warship design quite unparalleled in naval history; a period that began with the fully-rigged broadside ironclads and ended with the emergence of the great battleships and battlecruisers that were to fight in the First World War.The author explains how ninetheenth-century designers responded to developments in engine technology, armour protection and armament in their attempts to develop the best possible fighting ships. He details the development of more efficient engines that brought about the demise of th
