Jane's Fighting Ships

Jane's Fighting Ships is an annual reference book of information on all the world's warships arranged by nation, including information on ships' names, armaments and photographs, etc. Each edition describes and illustrates warships of different national naval and paramilitary forces, providing data on their characteristics; the first issue was illustrated with Jane's own ink sketches--photos began to appear with the third volume in 1900. The present title was adopted in 1905, it was published by John Frederick Thomas Jane in London in 1898 as Jane's All the World's Fighting Ships, in order to assist naval officers and the general public in playing naval wargames. Its success launched a number of military publications carrying the name "Jane's", it is a unit of Jane's Information Group, now owned by IHS. Ten early editions of Jane's were reissued in facsimile reprints by Arco Publishing starting in 1969. All of these appeared in the oblong or "landscape" format that characterized the series into the late 1950s, when the present "portrait" layout was adopted, thus matching the sister Jane's publication on aircraft.

Beginning in the early 2000s, Jane's has been published online, on CD and microfiche. 1898–1915: Fred T.
