List of World War II ships

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

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 cruisers 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.
