Welcome to Russian Battleships

This site contains resources about Russian Imperial Navy for English-speaking researchers and translators.

When I started translating a nautical book, I quickly realized that while there are many sites in English and in Russian dedicated to this subject, but not much help for a translator.  Now the book is translated and will soon be published.  This site contains information that I assembled while working on the book. Although it is not limited to battleships, I wanted to honor the monograph on the subject, Russian and Soviet battleships by Stephen McLaughlin, which was my major source of information on the topic.
