Representing five years of research, The Battlecruiser HMS Hood is easily the most comprehensive book ever published on this great warship. Bruce Taylor shares her entire story—from the laying of her keel on the Clyde to her destruction by the Bismarck—in words, photos, and color artwork. The unique assortment of photos assembled in this book includes stills from a recently discovered piece of color footage. Thomas Schmid presents readers the opportunity to further explore
and admire the Hood with his digitally created images of the exterior and interior of the ship. The new information on the Hood’s operation and structure make this book essential reading for any enthusiast, modeler, or historian.

BRUCE TAYLOR was born in Chile in 1967 and educated at the University of Manchester and at Oxford where he received a doctorate in modern history in 1996. He is also the co-author of U-Boat Attack Logs.
