From wooden Greek galleys to vast battleships bristling with huge guns, warships have provided vital defense for nations around the globe. Throughout history, warships have become faster, stronger - and ever more deadly. This book follows the history of warships from the iron-clad vessels used in the American Civil War to today's gigantic aircraft carriers that can accommodate for over 60 fighter jets.
