Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
RAY BURT has researched the design, construction and service histories of British battleships for many years, and has also assembled one of the most outstanding collections that exists of photographs of the ships. He is also an accomplished draughtsman and illustrator, and many of his superb drawings appear in this book.
Die hilfreichsten Kundenrezensionen auf Amazon.com
The majority of the book focuses on the ships themselves, each class receiving it's own chapter. Each class receives a description of the basic design requirements and evolution, the ships' armament, armor, and machinery, appearance changes throughout the ship's service, and a chronological history of each ship. These descriptions are accompanied by a large number of tables, which provide details on proposed designs, legend and as-built particulars, costs, weight breakdowns, trials statistics, and stability figures. These, in turn, are accompanied by a large number of photographs, and plans drawn by the author.
The photo quality in the revised edition is extremely good. The images are scanned directly from the original plate-glass negatives, and are occasionally so crisp and clear you can see every rivet in the ships' hulls. Many are spread across two pages, although thankfully, the editors at Seaforth are generally wise enough to avoid important details falling into the gutter. Mr. Burt's drawings are also of excellent quality, with the usual outboard and plan views accompanied by transverse and longitudinal sections through the hull.
Although I'd love to see Norman Friedman take on the subject, especially after reading his excellent new book on post-Dreadnought British battleships, this an exceptionally fine reference work in it's own right. I would've liked some additional details on machinery and hull structure, but I suppose much on these ships have been lost to time. These ships put in incredibly hard service during World War One, and it's great to see at least one serious reference devoted to them. Each book in Burt's trilogy have their strong points, but this probably the most focused and detailed of the bunch.
As far as I'm concerned, this is the definitve work on the subject.
Yet again a well written book, with wonderful pictures and illustrations.
