Details

Monitor Warships mounted the biggest guns ever deployed by the Royal Navy and played an undeniably important role in Allied efforts during World War 1 and World War 2. They were built as cheap 'disposable' ships made out of redundant buts and pieces the Admiralty happened to have available. The object was to support military operations on land with the colossal fire power of heavy navy guns.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of Monitor warships, charting their evolution from bomb ketches in the 18th Century, to the heavily armoured Allied weapons platforms of the First World War and beyond.
