Warships After Washington

Warships After Washington

The Washington Treaty of 1922 was a watershed event designed to head off a potentially dangerous arms race between the major naval powers. The terms of the treaty included an agreement to legally bind limits on the number and size of principal warship types, effectively banning the construction of new battleships for a decade. While the basics of the treaty are understood by a specific audience with an interest in warships, the wider context of the treaty and the detailed ramifications of its provisions are less understood. Now available in paperback, Warships After Washington is unique in its coverage of the political and strategic background of the treaty, providing specific analysis of how the navies of Britain, the U.S., Japan, France, and Italy responded.
