Praise

“The drawings, photographs, and artwork are first rate…The typical ship modeler can readily use these books as a good reference when building any of these important ships.” – Rodger Cole, Model Shipwrights (November 2009)

“This title offers a comprehensive review of the seven battleships of the Nelson and King George V classes from their initial commissioning to their peacetime modifications in wartime service, detailed descriptions of the main armament of the ships will offer further analysis of individual battleships effectiveness discussing how the guns were manned when engaging the enemy. Moreover a specially commissioned artwork and a dramatic retelling of the battleship battles, this book will highlight what it was like on board for the sailors who risked their lives on the high seas.” – Ken Williams, IPMS/USA (December 2009)

“All of Britain’s battleship classes are covered in some detail as to the design and armament… This is all accompanied by some superb photos of the various ships and by the excellent art work of Tony Bryan and Paul Wright. This helps us to see how these ships improved over the years and the differences in the various classes. In all, it makes for an excellent primer on the subject and fully meets this reviewer’s expectations of books in this series. If you want to learn about the subject, I know you will find it to be equally useful.  Buy with confidence.” -Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness/modelingmadness.com (December 2009)
