1st.ed., 1989. 192 pp., profusely illustrated with photographs & maps. D.j., 30 x 22cm. FINE. In this study of the Royal Navy and the Dominion fleets at war, 1939-1945, the author examines where, when and how British warships were lost and in what circumstances. Together with background political, military and naval information, he places their actions and losses into perspective. The losses are traced month by month across all theatres of the conflict, and with the ships went casualties in men totalling over 50,000 killed – almost half the Navy’s pre-war strength. Profusely illustrated with photographs and maps, this is a most useful source of reference which also gives totals for merchant ship losses for each period/theatre of war. THE ACTIONS & LOSSES OF BRITISH & DOMINION WARSHIPS, 1939-1945.
