Full Description:

Between 1906 and 1920 the Clydebank shipyard of John Brown & Sons built five battlecruisers, each one bigger than the last, culminating in the mighty HMS Hood, the largest warship of her day. Like most shipyards of the time, Clydebank employed professional photographers to record the whole process of construction, using large-plate cameras that produced photos of stunning clarity and detail, although very few of the images have ever been published. This pictorial collection, with its lengthy and informative captions, offers ship modelers and enthusiasts a wealth of visual information simply unobtainable elsewhere.

Ian Johnston is the author of several books, including Ships for a Nation, and Beardmore Built, the story of another great Clydeside yard.

Praise for Clydebank Battlecruisers

Clydebank Battlecruisers has to be one of the outstanding publications of the year, and anyone with an interest in the major ships of the Grand Fleet or shipbuilding on the Clyde will want to own it.”
