Full Description:

HMS Belfast, originally a Royal Navy light cruiser, is now permanently moored on the Thames in London. One of ten Town-class cruisers she saw service on the icy Arctic convoys during World War II, at the bombardment of the D-Day beaches in 1944, and  during the Korean War. This well illustrated guide provides reference for ship modelers, naval buffs, historians and students. Containing 200 specially commissioned photographs, it takes the reader on a superbly illustrated tour of the ship, from bow to stern and deck by deck. Significant parts of the vessel—for example, the gun turrets and engine rooms—are given detailed coverage both in words and pictures, so that the reader has the most complete visual record and explanation of the ship that exists.

Richard Johnstone-Bryden is a professional marine author, historian and photographer. A member of the original working party and council of Heritage Afloat, he has been actively involved in naval heritage matters. He lives in Norfolk, England.
