Item Description

The Washington Treaty of 1922, a watershed event designed to head off a potentially dangerous arms race between the major naval powers, agreed to legally binding limits on the numbers and sizes of principal warship types, effectively banning the construction of new battleships for a decade.

WARSHIPS AFTER WASHINGTON is unique in its coverage of the political and strategic background of the treaty with analysis of exactly how the navies of Britain, the USA , Japan, France, and Italy responded. For the first time, warship enthusiasts and historians can understand fully the rationale behind much of inter-war naval procurement.
