Comments: A concise history of the Royal Australian Navy Warships and Auxiliaries of the 1940s including many pictures and illustrations of RAN warships.

The 1940s – in particular, the period of World War II – were the busiest years for the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) during the 20th century.

At the beginning of war, the RAN’s fleet comprised fewer than 20 large surface combatants and various smaller support craft – by the end of the war, it numbered around 150 large vessels plus numbers support and ancillary craft.

This new volume details all the major combatant and ancillary ships of the Royal Australian Navy in service during that decade.
