Kurzbeschreibung

19. September 2013
This volume brings to completion the reissue of R A Burt's magnificent bestselling three-volume history of British battleships, and it covers the pre-dreadnought era which has, in recent years, acquired a new and fervent following. The Russian war scare of 1884 and the public's anxiety about the Royal Navy's ability to fight a modern war at sea resulted in the Naval Defence Act of 1889 and a vast programme of warship construction. Over the next twenty years a fleet of 52 battleships was built, construction finally interrupted by the revolutionary Dreadnought design. In this new volume, the author presents full details of design and construction, armament, protection, machinery and performance, all backed up with accurate data tables listing design figures, trials results, and full particulars at different stages in the ships' careers. The history of each battleship is chronicled and the reader is reminded of their major contribution in the First World War. They bore the brunt of the action at the Dardenelles, bombarded the Belgium coast, patrolled the North Sea and the Channel, reinforced the Italian Fleet, and served in East Africa, the East Indies and the White Sea. Most were extensively modified during the War and this variety has made them of special interest to the historian, enthusiast and ship modeller. With the addition of many new photographs from the author's massive collection, this new edition is simply a 'must-have' addition to every naval library.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An exceptional work. 19. November 2013
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I recently described two more books in this series by R. A. Burt as works you would want to own and this is no different. The extent of the detail given to every aspect of technical information really is most impressive.

By the mid 1880s the Royal Navy’s ability to conduct a modern war at sea was being openly questioned. The resultant Naval Defence Act of 1889 led to a programme of an astonishing 52 battleships being constructed over the next 22 years. With such a vast empire to police and protect, the Royal Navy always maintained a fleet of ships equal in size and disposition to the next two largest naval fleets in the world so that it would be equal to the task should any two of those fleets join forces in opposition. This programme of complete reconstruction, however, was only spoiled by the introduction of the new Dreadnought design which was as revolutionary to the future development of warships as the jet engine would become to aircraft many years later.

This book, however, deals with the pre-Dreadnought British battleships 1889-1904 and is such an exceptional work it stands mast and funnel above all other books in my own library. By repeating the chapter headings, one gets an idea of the scope of the vessels covered; Royal Sovereign class, Hood, Centurion and Barfleur, Renown, Majestic class, Canopus class, Formidable class, Bulwark class, Duncan class, Queen class, King Edward VII class, Swiftsure and Triumph, Lord Nelson class, Appearance and changes, Battleship Forts and Battleship Exterminators, Conclusion, Bibliography and finally, Index.

By repeating the chapter headings, one gets an idea of the scope of the vessels covered; Royal Sovereign class, Hood, Centurion and Barfleur, Renown, Majestic class, Canopus class, Formidable class, Bulwark class, Duncan class, Queen class, King Edward VII class, Swiftsure and Triumph, Lord Nelson class, Appearance and changes, Battleship Forts and Battleship Exterminators, Conclusion, Bibliography and finally, Index.

Personally, I came to the work through my own ongoing research into the loss of two Duncan class battleships and, in order to give the reader an idea of the immense value of the work, the following detail is explained just for this single class of battleship. Altogether 21 pages are devoted to the Duncan class. Commencing with Design, we find technical details (as intended) for HMS’ Duncan and Albermarle with a rare photo of the former in Victorian colours. Line drawings of profile and deck plan accompany another photo of HMS Russell with the text continuing to describe every element of these vessels. Armament is followed by a sequence of photographs showing HMS’ Cornwallis completing in 1904, Duncan and a closer view of the latter’s guns being replaced in Malta in 1909.

With the remainder of the section also accompanied by even more excellent historic photographs, we find; technical details (as completed); brief details of all 6 ships of the class by name, displacement, dimensions, armament, armour, machinery, ship’s boats, searchlights, anchors, wireless, complement and the cost of each vessel and guns. Various cutaway sections (profile and a number of cross sections) with each internal compartment numbered and explained. The vessels’ stability is followed by an in-depth appreciation of the Cornwallis’ steam trials of 1903 and the class collective steam trials. Appearance changes is followed by a potted history of each of the 6 individual ships of the class.

Commencing with HMS Duncan, we find a bullet list of events by date from ‘laid down’ to ‘towed to Dover for scrapping.’ HMS Montagu follows in similar format but with a particularly descriptive narrative relating to her grounding and eventual loss. HMS’ Cornwallis, Russell, Albermarle and Exmouth are then given their own similar treatment.

If this extensively detailed information relating to a single class of pre-Dreadnought battleship were then to be multiplied by the remaining classes found within this outstanding work, I would suggest most readers will find the answers to all the questions they may have.

5.0 von 5 Sternen More Of The Best. 21. November 2013
Von S. E. Bradfield - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I had already purchased the other two volumes, and I have an original copy of this one. I wanted this "New Revised Edition" to compare to the original and to have a matched set of all three. This edition really is revised, with new photos and new descriptions, and it maintains the magnificent standard set by Mr. Burt, with more attention to detail and history than any other volumes on the subject. That, and the price is very good at the moment.

As far as I'm concerned, this is the definitve work on the subject.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book to round out the set 26. Dezember 2013
Von T. Boyle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
As with the other 2 volumes, a great book to round out the set.

Yet again a well written book, with wonderful pictures and illustrations.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Essential reference. 9. August 2014
Von Chris Sterling - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This volume and the two that follow it are among the most important ever published on British battleships (and battle cruisers and even a few carriers made from battleships). Earlier editions are very expensive if you can find one. Well-researched and written, the photographs will grab your initial attention--large and clear, and many not published before. You can almost hear the waves--and guns. Along with the photos are excellent profile diagrams of changing ship types and their growing size. A brief color section illustrates changing ship colors from the Victorian to Edwardian navy, and large color profiles on the endpapers further show how these vessels really looked in their prime. (If you have the original edition, there is not much change here . . . but if these books are not yet on your shelf, take advantage of their reasonable price now.)
