    The battleship was a capital ship built in the first half of the 20th century. Some uncompleted Axis ships are included, out of historic interest. The construction and launch of new ships during the war was limited due to protracted development and production timelines, but important developments were often retrofitted to older vessels.

Janes Fighting Ships of World War II book

Ships are designated to the country under which they operated for the longest period of the Second World War, regardless of where they were built or previous service history. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such see Wikipedia: Book series.

By the end of the war, battleship construction was all but halted, and almost every existing battleship was retired or scrapped within a few years of its end.

If you want to force a particular order, use the character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, " 0 prequel " sorts by 0 under the label "prequel.

Ideally displacements will be as they were at either the end of the war, or when the ship was sunk. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg.

But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works. By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. For smaller vessels, see also list of World War II ships of less than tons.

Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. The list includes armed vessels that served during the war and in the immediate aftermath, inclusive of localized ongoing combat operations, garrison surrenders, post-surrender occupation, colony re-occupation, troop and prisoner repatriation, to the end of But the most important naval advances were in the field of anti-submarine warfare.

Naval innovations included the use of diesel engines, and welded rather than riveted hulls. How do series work? Works can belong to more than one series.
