BOOK REVIEW | The Battleship Holiday – The Naval Treaties and Capital Ship Design

By Robert C Stern

This book is a very useful and comprehensive summary of the sixty year “battleship era” that ran roughly from 1895 to 1955. While it focuses on the “Battleship Holiday” of the early twenties to early thirties when various international treaties tried to control the numbers and firepower of the world’s battleships, it is much more than that.
