I only actually knew the Yamato, Iowa, and Bismarck classes.. (I knew the Hood, too, but forgot to guess it, and couldn't have told you what class it was in). Then I got 10 others by randomly guessing U.S. states.

The quiz should be World War II Batleships and Battle Cruisers. Including the Deautschland class is a bit of a stretch, but they appear that way in several books.

Excellent quiz, although some French, Italian and Russian dreadnoughts are missing. To those commenting that the 'Deutschland' class should not be in, the cruisers should not - but I believe that the quiz is referring to the three old pre-dreadnoughts reserved by Germany for coastal duties - Hannover, Schlesien and Schleswig-Holstein.

I typed Graf Spee and it gave me the point so unfortunately the quiz does include the armoured ships as battleships while overlooking the old pre-dreadnoughts.

why do you leave out the Courbet, Bretagne, Marat, Andea Doria, Conte di Cavour and Deutschland (pre dreadnought) classes? Strictly speaking Brazil joined the Allies so where's the Sao Paolo/Minais Gerais? And if you are referring to the WW2 era then Chile's Almirante Latorre, Argentina's Rivadavia and Turkey's Yavuz Sultan Selim should also be in there

Deutschland class cannot be considered battleships by any official definition. They were nicknamed 'pocket battleships' by the British, but they were heavy cruisers. Vanguard wasn't commissioned until after WW2 and wasn't in active service until after hostilities, so it shouldn't really be on this list. Renown and Alaska weren't battleships. Renown was a battlecruiser, Alaska was officially a Large Cruiser but fit the definition of a battlecruiser. Otherwise, a good quiz.
