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, ships, list, world and/or war:

    Shea—they call him Scholar Jack—
    Went down the list of the dead.
    Officers, seamen, gunners, marines,
    The crews of the gig and yawl,
    The bearded man and the lad in his teens,
    Carpenters, coal-passers—all.
    Joseph I. C. Clarke (1846–1925)

    I have seen old ships sail like swans asleep
    James Elroy Flecker (1884–1919)

    Love’s boat has been shattered against the life of everyday. You and I are quits, and it’s useless to draw up a list of mutual hurts, sorrows, and pains.
    Vladimir Mayakovsky (1893–1930)

    The book borrower of real stature whom we envisage here proves himself to be an inveterate collector of books not so much by the fervor with which he guards his borrowed treasures and by the deaf ear which he turns to all reminders from the everyday world of legality as by his failure to read these books.
    Walter Benjamin (1892–1940)

    The dead have been awakened—shall I sleep?
    The world’s at war with tyrants—shall I crouch?
    The harvest’s ripe—and shall I pause to reap?
    I slumber not; the thorn is in my couch;
    Each day a trumpet soundeth in mine ear,
    Its echo in my heart.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
