Handbook of the Fleet / Navy 1943/44
Gilt on boards and spine, warship lists of all the major powers.
Used to identify shipping before engagement - helps to avoid scoring any own goals!! Photographs and sillhouettes of all known naval shipping worldwide. It also gives other essential data like displacement - tonnage, speed in knots, armaments, armour and depth of keel for any identified target- without which a torpedo firing solution could not be calculated.
