    Warspite is touted as book 4 of the Ark Royal series but it would be more accurate to view it as book 1 of the Warspite series. The war that provided the Ark Royal series story arc is over and it's absence is felt.   "Robert Brown's Battleship Warspite: Detailed in the Original Builder's Plans is an exciting new addition to my naval bookshelf. It is highly recommended for naval professionals and interested naval enthusiasts. The next books in this series Cruiser Birmingham and Aircraft Carrier Victorious should also be equally rewarding."—Australian Naval Institute.

    Warspite was a great ship (later classed as a second rate) of the English Tudor navy. The vessel was built at Deptford Dockyard by the master shipwright Edward Stevens and launched about 1 March She carried a crew of when at sea, of whom were classed as "mariners", manning the guns and fighting the ship; 80 as "sailors", working the sails and ancestors of present-day seamen and Sail plan: Full-rigged ship. A great book which brings together stories from every aspect of the royal navy's ships, Warspite. This book covers all the Warspites, but the vast bulk of the book is about the HMS Warspite that fought in WW1 and WW2. A blinking good s:

    No warship name in British naval history has more battle honours than HMS Warspite. While this book looks at the lives of all eight vessels to bear the name (between and the s), it concentrates on the truly epic story of the seventh vessel, a super-dreadnought battleship, conceived as the ultimate answer to German naval power, during the arms race that helped cause : Pen & Sword Books.
