The complete technical history of British capital ship design and construction during the dreadnought era. One hundred years ago at Jutland, Dogger Bank, Heligoland Bight, and off the Falklands, mighty squadrons of these great armoured ships fought their German counterparts for command of the seas. Beginning with Dreadnought, the book continues to the end of the First World War, and details all of the fifty dreadnoughts, ‘super-dreadnoughts’ and battlecruisers that served the Royal Navy during this era. Illustrated with photographs and line drawings, each class of ship is described as to design origins & characteristics, technical and operational details, with special emphasis on armament, armour and machinery. Fully detailed data tables are included for every class.Item #900978
