the tables coping with Allied and Neutral merchant vessel / fishing vessel losses during the WW2 arranged by S. W. Roskill and printed in his books "The War at Sea" are quite broadly known nowadays. The losses are divided by theater and by causes. According to him, 5.150 ships were lost in total (21.570.720 grt) 1939 - 1945.
BUT is it known / is it possible to find out somewhere which particular ships does he consider, which ships does he exactly count up?
I have been collecting names of exact ships using numerous sources (Schiffswrackliste, Lloyd´s War Losses, uboat.net, Chronik des Seekrieges 1939 - 1945, [www.battleships-cruisers.co.uk
], wrecksite.eu etc.)
for years and such info would help me.
