The Battleship WarspiteBook - 1986
Arguably one of the finest capital ship designs of all time, Warspite and her sister ships were the prototypes of the modern fast battleship, the ultimate development of the dreadnought type. Warspite's fighting career spanned two generations -- from the last great surface engagement between battle fleets at Jutland in 1916, to the dawn of the missile age (she was badly damaged by a guided bomb in 1942), with battle honours that also included Narvik, Matapan, and the D-Day landings.
