Erster Teil einer vier-teiligen Serie die mit 1982 endet. Diese Serie ist ein einzigartig guter Überblick über die Kriegflotten der Welt durch die Geschichte. Sie zeigt anhand der kurzen Lebensdauer der meisten Einheiten die nutzlose und gewissenlose Vergeudung an Menschenleben und Sachwerten durch die Politiker und Militärs deutlich auf.

A complete reference library in one book. 4. Mai 2007
Von Ned Middleton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Conway's All the World's Fighting Ships 1860-1905 is the first in a series of 4 books which, as the title suggests, lists all the worlds fighting ships built in that period between the first ironclad warship and the Dreadnought battleship. This was a time when the world's first great arms race was running a full speed - in short, as one country built a big battleship - so another would simply design one that was even bigger.

Conway Maritime Press are well known for their factual books on ships - especially warships, in which they provide the finest technical documentation. "All the World's Fighting Ships 1860-1905" is hard-back measuring 12½" x 8¾" with 440 pages of detailed and factual information. After a brief foreword and an explanation of abbreviations used, the navies of the world are divided into three main headings; The world's great powers, coast defence navies and minor navies. Under each of these headings all the relevant ships are then listed by country. Displayed by "class," each section then commences with the largest battleships and progresses all the way down to the smallest torpedo boats (or whatever) with the oldest vessels mentioned first. For each class there is one or more of those profile line drawings which have become Conway's trademark. These are followed by all the usual technical details such as; Displacement, dimensions, machinery, armour, armament and complement followed by the names of each ship within that class - it's builder, date laid down, date completed and fate. These are accompanied by a very "readable" text from which we learn of the political intrigue of the day, variations between vessels, refits, new equipment, whatever defects or other problems that beset either the class or a specific ship and a short résumé of the fate of each vessel.

Altogether, the book is well illustrated with an excellent selection of historic black and white original photographs throughout with at least one picture on almost every page.

In summary, this is an excellent technical work of reference and one which will continue to stand the test of time. Put another way, this is one of those books you will wish you had bought - after it becomes out of print.

The definitive resource for info on warships of the period. 27. August 1997
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Conway's All the World's Fighting Ships, 1860-1905 is--without a doubt--the most detailed and complete reference for warships in the Civil War, ironclad, and pre-dreadnought eras.

Covering ships built just before the Civil War to the end of the Russo-Japanese war, this book contains information that you just won't find anywhere else. Each ship class built in this period, from torpedo boats to battleships, is detailed with an average of a half to one page per class. The stats for the ship (length, width, draught, speed, armour thickness, gun configuration, etc.) are complemented by a brief history of the vessels in question and a listing of modifications within the class.

At the beginning of the book is an indepth discussion of ship building of the era, including such things as discussions on magazine design, armour design, and other hard-to-find information.

The ships are listed alphabetically by nation for easy reference. This is a must for serious researchers, military historians, and naval wargamers.

Excellent single volume compilation for this period 29. Juli 2006
Von Christopher J. Keesing - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This remains among the best single volume reference works on naval materiel for the ironclad up through the pre-dreadnaught era and a worthy kick-off to the rest of the "All the World's" series. This was especially true in 1979 when systematic coverage of ironclad and pre-dreadnaught capital ships, much less other naval units, was virtually lacking unless one had access to old editions of Brassey's, Jane's, or Parkes and even then illustrated coverage of the first 20 years of this period was scant. One might hope that Conway would have followed through on its promised update to correct some omissions and increase the number of line drawings. Additionally, a promised volume on the first half of the 19th century's naval materiel to address the transition from sail to steam and shell gun has never emerged. A must-have for any collection on 19th century naval materiel and history.

"Conway's" along with the works of Fred Jane, is the best starting source for a naval historian or wargamer. "Conway's" has the advantage of covering a longer time frame in one volume, in this case, from 1860-1905. Naval enthusiats will find short descriptions and photos or line drawings of ships from the American Civil War, the Great Pacific War of South America, the Spanish-American War, the Russo-Japanese War, and many of the ships still serving at the beginnings of the Balkan Wars and World War One.

The text is well written, tying the ships together in a narrative of naval design and engineering. The photos are generally more clear than those found in the early editions of "Jane's". If a good photo for a class is not available, a line drawing is used instead. Both are good starting points for model makers.

While often expensive, this book is indeed priceless to the true student or hobbyist..

Different point of view then Janes of the similiar period. I like the way the information is layed out.
