Old Battleship Articles

Recommended Posts

I've posted a couple of early 20th century battleship articles at:

http://www.dataviewbooks.com/naval.html

the first (1907) deals with the Japanese Satsuma which would have beaten Dreadnought as the first all-big gun ship had she been finished to the original design - there is a photo of the ship's launching.

The second is a 1918-vintaqe cross-section plan for a US 12-inch turret - there was no data on any specific class.

that is very good informative article and for those that build battleships an invaluable help at such a low price too

Great link & interesting articles - thank-you. Was not the Japanese Satsuma just a copy build of the RN's Lord Nelson class? and Dreadnought's other major 'first' was the radical introduction of parson's steam turbines whereas Satsuma still had reciprocating steam engines. (Goes to prove i didn't sleep thru' all those lectures at Dartmouth after all!)
