13: The End of the Naval Treaty


In this episode we will discuss the final collapse of the Treaty, which the Royal Navy had started planning for years in advance. Then we will look at some of the concrete plans and actions that the Royal Navy would start the moment that the Japanese withdrew from the treaty restrictions. We will only talk about the modernization efforts that resulted from these plans today, before diving into the planning and construction of the King George V class next episode, at which point we will look at all of the other British pre-war battleship designs.
