Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The destruction of the HMS Hood by the Bismarck in 1941 was one of the most shocking episodes in the history of the Royal Navy. Built during World War I, it was the largest, fastest and one of the most handsome capital ships in the world. This entry in the Anatomy of a Ship series—now in paper—features a detailed description of every aspect of the beloved battlecruiser. In addition to analyzing the genesis of its design and its contemporary significance, this exceptional study features superb line drawings, technical details, and the Hood's full service history.

About the Author

John Roberts is widely recognized for his contributions to warship literature. He was editor of Warship for six years and is the coauthor 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 Dreadnought and Intrepid, were widely acclaimed.
