List of World War II Ships

List Of World War II Ships

The List of ships of World War II is an alphabetical list of major military ships of World War II. Only warships with a displacement of 1,000 tons or greater are listed. For smaller vessels, see also list of World War II ships of less than 1000 tons. Ships known by a number, such as German u-boats, are not listed individually, although their existence is recorded.

This list does not include all ships used for military purposes, e.g.; oilers, troopships, landing craft, etc., partly for space reasons and partly since this is a list of fighting ships. In general, entries are restricted to ships that were commissioned before or during the war. Thus, some of the Alaska class battlecruisers and Colossus class aircraft carriers are excluded. As an exception, however, some uncompleted Axis ships are included, for interest's sake.

For ship classes, see the list of World War II ship classes.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, list, world, war and/or ships:

    A man’s interest in a single bluebird is worth more than a complete but dry list of the fauna and flora of a town.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Do your children view themselves as successes or failures? Are they being encouraged to be inquisitive or passive? Are they afraid to challenge authority and to question assumptions? Do they feel comfortable adapting to change? Are they easily discouraged if they cannot arrive at a solution to a problem? The answers to those questions will give you a better appraisal of their education than any list of courses, grades, or test scores.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    As there is a use in medicine for poisons, so the world cannot move without rogues.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I really don’t think this war will end soon. We are completely aware of the difficulties, no food or fuel, the danger, but we want to be stronger than all that. With each child, we are fighting back with our love of life.
    Tina Bajraktarebic (b. 1965)

    Haven’t you heard, though,
    About the ships where war has found them out
    At sea, about the towns where war has come
    Through opening clouds at night with droning speed
    Further o’erhead than all but stars and angels
    And children in the ships and in the towns?
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
