World's Mightiest Warships Kim Lockwood

Humans have been fighting each other on water since they straddled their first logs. From there they graduated to trading blows and arrows on rafts, slashed with swords in small wooden boats, fired cannon and muskets from big wooden ships and finally launched torpedoes and nuclear missiles from the monsters we know today, the iron and steel and synthetic specialist fighting vessels. World's Mightiest Warships tells the gripping story of war on the water in graphic detail, with pictures from the past, present and future.
