This meticulously researched and illustrated book explores the fascinating history of the battleship and the cruiser. It begins with the first ironclad wooden-hulled ships of the 19th century, followed by the Dreadnoughts of World War I and the mighty battleships and battle cruisers of World War II. Progress of the cruiser is traced from early ships with muzzle-loading, broadside armament, through casemates and turrets to the age of guided missiles. Containing a huge amount of information, together with a unique collection of more than 1200 photographs and illustrations, the book provides enthusiasts and historians with in-depth knowledge about these history-making ships.
