As one who is continually involved in professional research into historic ships of all types, my first impression was of the considerable fine detail which is included. Easily one of ‘the’ most comprehensive works on the subject of the British battleship from the First World War, I was particularly impressed with, for example, the significant differences between the 12in gun turrets fitted to different vessels. By providing line drawings and explanations of those different turrets (and other aspects), those with a far greater knowledge of these ships than my own will be able to appreciate the entire product.
I would also suggest these minute variations and differences will also be of great assistance to those who make scale models.
With over 350 pages of fully researched material, the author sets the scene in a well-written and well-illustrated eleven page introduction in which he provides the reader with an appraisal rarely seen in other works. In addition, when one considers this is a technical tome in which all the relevant battleships and their various designs and variations are all fully explained, it says much for this author that the work is immensely readable. In no time at all, I found myself cross-referencing from page to page as I worked my way through the book – and enjoying it immensely.
The main chapters cover the following Classes of ship with all the information one would hope to find; Dreadnought, Invincible, Bellerophon, St. Vincent, Indefatigable, Neptune, Colossus, Orion, Lion, Queen Mary, King George V, Iron Duke, Tiger, Erin, Canada, Agincourt, Queen Elizabeth, Royal Sovereign, Renown & Repulse, Courageous, Glorious & Furious and finally we are treated to a Conclusion in which the author provides a fascinating view of these ships during the war years and an equally interesting comparison between the two major battle fleets of the time.
Both the quantity and quality of the historic photographs are of the highest standard and that aspect alone reflects the considerable thought and preparation which went into the completion of this first-rate work.

If you do not own the previous edition, then there can be no question you should acquire this book; and the same holds true if you have it. This book and the author have an immense reputation, and I choose not to dwell on it, and comment only on this edition.
There are additional photographs; in addition, the photos included in the earlier editions have been enhanced. There is much more contrast and resolution; they have been digitalized whereas the previous were converted by analog dot "screens" since photostatic contrast was TOO great, although some shots lose much of the atmosphere of the older ones and are of less artistic value. There is no question the informational value has been enhanced. I also cannot overemphasize the interest of the previously unpublished images.
The they reprinted it. With additions. For a great price. I bought it as soon as I saw it on Amazon. I haven't regretted it yet. The book is everything I hoped it would be, with attention to detail equalling that of his first book. Money well spent, and I love the book.
My only complaint for the book is the large line drawings of ships were have been better served with a foldouts. Other then that, the book is a fantastic collection of information. Now I only hope someone writes a similar book about German dreadnoughts.
