HASH(0x923d2e58) von 5 Sternen FINAL VOLUME OF AN AWESOME HISTORIC TRILOGY 9. August 2006
Von Heather L. Parisi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
FIRST THOUGHTS: THIS VOLUME WAS MY FAVORITE OF THE TRILOGY

I have read many books about this subject and this volume adds some fresh perspectives and details to what I have already come to understand. Although no book on the subject can be considered either perfect or all-inclusive this series and this specific volume in particular is comprehensive and organized in a very easy and useful format making it a 'must-have' for those with an intense interest in Battleships.

IN A NUTSHELL: CASE STUDIES OF 7 DISTINCTLY DIFFERENT CLASSES OF DREADNOUGHTS FROM 4 COUNTRIES

CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION
CHAPTER TWO: THE YAMATO CLASS
CHAPTER THREE: THE SCHARNHORST CLASS
CHAPTER FOUR: THE BISMARCK CLASS
CHAPTER FIVE: GERMANY THE "H" CLASS BATTLESHIPS
CHAPTER SIX: THE "O" CLASS BATTLECRUISERS
CHAPTER SEVEN: THE VITTORIO VENETO CLASS
CHAPTER EIGHT: SPAIN
CHAPTER NINE: CONCLUSION

APPENDIXES

A- STABILITY CHARACTERISTICS OF THE BISMARCK CLASS
B- INBOARD PROFILE AND DECK PLANS OF THE BISMARCK
C- BATTLESHIP AND BATTLECRUISER GUNS

WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT: THE ZENITH OF A NATIONS TECHNOLOGY & POWER

BOTTOM LINE: THE FINAL VOLUME OF AN AWESOME HISTORIC TRILOGY

After a complete reading of the entire trilogy, I feel, I now better understand the construction and design considerations that lead to a completed Dreadnought. These books and this volume in particular have fed my interest to look deeper into the topic of Dreadnought construction. After reading this series I feel better able to grasp the technical materials that I will have to deal with as I continue to delve into the fascinating topic of 'Dreadnoughts'.

HASH(0x923d624c) von 5 Sternen Extremely valuable 14. November 2001
Von Richard Worth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The G&D books cover a lot of territory. Each section begins with a short design history followed by an overview of the design, broken down into categories (armament, protection, propulsion plant, etc). When it comes to understanding a ship's armor scheme, there's no substitute for seeing a series of drawings; stats-in-a-vacuum like those in a Conway's are less than useless, and a token cross section gives only a glimpse. G&D provide a fully realized picture. The chapter on the Bismarck class is blemished by a lack of definitive information; only now is the extent of the 80mm weather deck generally becoming known, and G&D label it as 50mm throughout. In fact, plenty of questions remain on Bismarck and Tirpitz and their differences, so it's hard to fault G&D for this.
Another weakness is the reference to gun penetration data based on USN calculations; the formula for these calculations was actually intended to predict performance against homogenous armor, and its most common application has been for face-hardened armor. Thus they serve to be indicative only in the most general sense--in other words, why bother?
I find it easier to pick out the nits than to try to elaborate on the battery of qualities in the three books. They sit on the shelf within easy reach, and I refer to them regularly.

HASH(0x923d37f8) von 5 Sternen Garzke and Dulin - the Battleship twins 21. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The authors of this book complete their trilogy on capital ships of the World War II era with this book. They examine WWI development, the Washington Naval Conference and its effect on pre WWII designs, the escalator clause and wartime developments affecting the battleships and battlecruisers of Japan, Germany, Italy and Spain. Spain is included among the Axis powers due to Franco's right wing regime and aid received from Germany and Italy during the civil war. Step by step details of the design of Yamato and the inherent weakness of her underwater protection are discussed. The gunnery comparisons between Yamato and Iowa are surprising. The chase and sinking of Bismarck and Scharnhorst are detailed and the weaknesses in German designs are pointed out. Finally, the authors compare capital ships in four design areas: 1) battlecruisers 2} 35,000 ton designs 3) 45,000 ton designs 4) 45,000 plus ton designs. There are gunnery tables included at the end for comparison of contemporary naval artillery. This book, along with their books on Allied and US Battleships, belongs on the shelf of any wargamer or warship historian/enthusiast.

HASH(0x923d52c4) von 5 Sternen Awe-inspiring, though not comprehensive 30. Januar 2009
Von M. Broderick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
After a very brief history of political influences on warship construction between the wars (mostly discussion of the disarmament treaties and the compliance or non-compliance of the affected navies) and another very brief discussion of warship design basics, we are given the meat of the book--Very detailed coverage of a few selected ship classes from each of the Axis navies. A brief operational history of each ship class is followed by exhaustive discussion of technical details. The authors assume great familiarity with naval terminology and technology by the reader, and don't slow down to cover anything that might be new to you. But the detailed critiques and comparisons are fascinating. Highly recommended for warship buffs who want to know it all about these particular ships. Note that it is not a "complete" guide to Axis battleships, and doesn't pretend to be one.

Nits include that the paper doesn't give best advantage to allow the reader to examine details of some of the excellent photos, and the size of the photos isn't all we could wish for in some cases where the original photo apparently contains a lot of detail--This is not a picture book, so perhaps judging it by those standards is unfair.

Other nits include that the book is now 25 years old, and in some cases new knowledge has come to light that would influence some of the conclusions here.

Final nit is that as mentioned, in some cases those who aren't professional marine architects, or at least extremely enthusiastic amateurs will be thumbing through reference books to uncover some of the terminology.

An essential book for those with a deep interest in these warships.

HASH(0x923d55d0) von 5 Sternen Painstakingly Detailed 10. Juni 2013
Von John Priestle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book describes the technical details of Axis (German, Japanese, and Italian) battleships and a battleship class designed, but not built, by neutral Spain. Battleships designed, but not built, by the Axis powers are also included. The book is 523 pages long and resplendent with photographs, line drawings (many fold-outs), diagrams, and individual ship histories. Note that not all Axis battleships active in World War II are described: only those designed/built after the "battleship building holiday", (1930 - 1935). World War I battleships that were also active in World War II are ignored. Battleship guns, armor, machinery, antiaircraft defenses, torpedo defenses as well as the design process of these ship classes are described in exquisite detail. The individual ship histories are also vary detailed, including battle damage analysis.
