"The Anatomy of the Ship" series provides documentation of individual ships and ship types.

These are supported by technical details and a record of the ship's service history. HMS "Warspite" was arguably one of the finest capital ship designs of all time. "Warspite" and her four sister ships of the "Queen Elizabeth" class were the prototypes of the modern fast battleship, the ultimate development of the "Dreadnought" type.

The "Old Lady", as she was affectionaly known during World War II, was finally approved for breaking up in 1946.
