The grand fleet : warship design and development, 1906-1922 by D. K Brown( Book )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 183 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

Winston Churchill famously claimed that the submarine war in the Atlantic was the only campaign of the Second World War that really frightened him. If the lifeline to north America had been cut, Britain would never have survived; there could have been no build-up of US and Commonwealth forces, no D-Day landings, and no victory in western Europe. Furthermore, the battle raged from the first day of the war until the final German surrender, making it the longest and arguably hardest-fought campaign of the whole war.

Rebuilding the Royal Navy : warship design since 1945 by D. K Brown( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 105 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
