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 educated at the Universities of Manchester and Oxford where he received a doctorate in modern history. He is the author of The Battlecruiser HMS Hood, which was published in 2005 to critical acclaim.
