John Roberts is widely recognized for his contributions to warship literature. He was editor of Warship for six years and is the co-author of the standard works on British battleships and cruisers of the Second World War period. His superb warship plans led one authority to describe him as 'the best draughtsman in the UK'. His two previous volumes for Conway, on the Hood and Intrepid, were widely acclaimed.
Stunning photos to accompany the line drawings; those on
Dreadnought are particularly good. The subtitle to these reprints
in soft back, the ultimate references to the world s great ships
from the inside out says it all.
