Full Description:

British Battleships, 1919–1939 is one of the most sought after naval reference books since its original publication in 1993. A masterpiece of research and illustration, this new edition has been completely redesigned to feature over 70 new photographs, many never before seen in print.

Offering an unprecedented range of detail on all of the Royal Navy’s battleships and battle cruisers, R.A. Burt describes the evolution of the battleship classes through many modifications and refits. He also details design features, armor, machinery, power plants, and weaponry, while examining and analyzing the performance of the ships in battle.

A delight for the historian, enthusiast, and ship modeler, this new volume is regarded as an essential reference work for one of the most significant eras in naval history and ship design.

R. A. Burt has researched British battleships for many years, assembling one of the most outstanding collections of photographs of the ships. He is an accomplished draughtsman and illustrator, and many of his superb drawings appear in this book. He lives in England.

~Praise for British Battleships, 1919–1945~

“Excellent that Burt’s book is back after nineteen years, and doubly excellent that it appears as a second edition…A magnificent monument to the Royal Navy’s golden years that can be recommended for pride of place on any bookshelf.”
