Script error The List of ships of World War II is an alphabetical list of major military ships of World War II. Only warships with a displacement of 1,000 tons or greater are listed. For smaller vessels, see also list of World War II ships of less than 1000 tons. Ships known by a number, such as German u-boats, are not listed individually, although their existence is recorded.

This list does not include all ships used for military purposes, e.g.; oilers, troopships, landing craft, etc., partly for space reasons and partly since this is a list of fighting ships. In general, entries are restricted to ships that were commissioned before or during the war. Thus, some of the Alaska class battlecruisers and Colossus class aircraft carriers are excluded. As an exception, however, some uncompleted Axis ships are included, for interest's sake.

For ship classes, see the list of World War II ship classes. Template:Inc-transport
