TREATY CRUISERS

by Leo Marriot

The Washington Naval Treaty of 1921 effectively established the size and composition of the various navies in World War II. They laid down design parameters and tonnage limitations for each class of warship including battleships, aircraft carriers, cruisers and destroyers. With one or two exceptions, battleship construction was deferred until the mid 1930s but virtually all navies embraced the concept of 8 inch, gun armed 10,000 ton heavy cruisers and laid down new vessels almost immediately. This book describes the heavy cruisers designed and built to the same rules by each nation and then consider how the various classes fared in World War II.
