I enjoy all these facets of a conflict and so having an insight to the naval dimensional well is all to the good in my opinion.
I bounced a fairly innocuous comment off of David Manley - my ‘go to’ oracle on matters naval related - about the war and he pointed me at the above book. This was duly ordered (courtesy of the balance of an Amazon gift card) and arrived today.
I was really surprised by a couple of points concerning this book. To begin with it is roughly A4 sized - I don’t know why but I expected something akin to an Osprey campaign style title - and it is also around half an inch thick, albeit a soft back (which is a shame).
What an absolute treasure this is! Aside from details of the naval operations of the war there is a whole raft of information about the ships involved supported by numerous line drawings, maps and technical details.
I have been messing about with some scratch built models for the war and so this book is a really timely addition to the library - especially as the side profiles of the ships involved will help with the models.
Very highly recommended and my thanks to David Manley for bringing it to my attention - cheers old chap!
