Conway’s All the World’s Fighting Ships: 1922-1946, editor, Roger Chesnau

Conway’s All the World’s Fighting Ships: 1922-1946, editor, Roger ChesnauConway’s All the World’s Fighting Ships: 1922-1946 is the third in the series by Conway, taking us from the end of the First World War to the end of the Second World War. Over this period, the Washington Treaty came into play, limiting capital ships. A rapid rearmament towards the middle and end of the ’30s also occurred. Conway’s is the most complete reference on ships from the end of the First World War until the end of the Second World War. Vessels in service with all navies over the time period are covered.

Better than the Janes publications, Conway’s draws on many sources to provide information on all vessels in service in the time period from Great Britain (including Empire Forces), USA, Germany, the Soviet Union, Japan, France, Italy, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Belgium, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Romania, Bulgaria, Persia, Siam, China, Manchukuo, Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Venezuela, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Albania, Austria, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Eire, Iceland and Iraq. What a great list.

    Try this link to Conway's 1947 – 1995 – it should take you to Amazon.co.uk where I believe that they have 1 new copy in stock at an associate shop – although it looks pricey at GBP 61.00 odd. It is a great publication and I can thoroughly and unreservedly recommend all 4 Conway's volumes if you have any interests in warships from about 1860 to the late 20th Century.

    If you prefer, you can try for a second hand version at Abebooks although I think that one (in the US) is even more expensive than the one in the UK.

      I went hunting and I cannot find any reference to USSR Built ships with a class name of Berlin. The only reference I could find to Berlin Class vessels was a pointer to Berlin class replenishment ship = the Type 702 Berlin class replenishment ships being the largest vessels of the Deutsche Marine (German Navy). In German, this type of ship is called Einsatzgruppenversorger which can be translated as task force supplier though the official designation in English is combat support ship. These ships carry fuel, provisions, ammunition and other matériel and also provide medical services.

      As for the "Smallest Ship in the World", I have no information – did you try looking at IMDB online (www.imdb.com) for the Finnish releases?
