Hello naval world! This site is devoted to naval history, 1906-1945 mainly, with a special attention to the never weres, the warships that were designed, or even launched, but did not enter service.

Specific sections are dedicated to the naval museums all around the world, to naval articles, and warships modelling. Use the “Categories” menu or the search box on the right (or below, depending on device you are using) to quickly find what you are interested in (search tip: use simple words, e.g. Nelson and not HMS Nelson model 1/48 scale).

A special content is the book in three languages devoted to the life of Italian Prisoners in German’s lagers printed just after the war.

Contributions are welcomed in comments, or as articles if you prefer; please stay on topic, be historically accurate, and avoid war time propaganda, we are far enough!
