The World’s Worst Warships


Perhaps not the best wording for a title. This book is based on the opinions of the author and the key is in the ‘Conclusions’ at the end of each entry. Preston is a prolific and experienced naval author and entitled to his opinions, some of which are controversial and provoking. As a result there will be many who will not share the author’s opinions but that should in no way detract from the book. Each entry contains details on the history and operation of each vessel and any sisters. There is at least one good quality black and white image of the vessel and a basic specification. Whether you agree or disagree with the author’s opinion, the history, image and specification are well researched and factual. The selection of vessels is interesting and spans the period from the US Civil War to 2002
