Re: American Propaganda Artists during World War I

It will probably be very difficult for you to find, but the San Antonio Public Library Foundation produced a booklet along with a presentation they had several years ago called "The Winds and Words of War." Here's the data: Alison Hays Lane, ed., San Antonio Public Library Foundation, 625 Shook Ave., San Antonio, TX, 78212. www.saplf.org and the phone number is (or was as of the printing in 2008) 210-225-4728. It has color prints of dozens of posters and a chapter on the artists.

Re: The Naval Balance, 1900-1941

My go-to works for the period you speak of are Conway's All the World Fighting Ships. You'd want two volumes, specifically:

Gardiner, Robert, ed. Conway’s All the World’s Fighting Ships, 1906–1921. London: Conway Maritime

            Press, 1985.

———. Conway’s All the World’s Fighting Ships, 1922–1946. London: Conway Maritime Press

            Ltd, 1980.

I also highly recommend two volumes about World War I and World War II naval history that do breakdowns by individual country:

On Seas Contested: The Seven Great
