John Lambert was a renowned naval draughtsman, whose plans were highly valued for their accuracy and detail by model makers and enthusiasts. By the time of his death in 2016 he had produced over 850 sheets of drawings, many of which have never been published. British Naval Weapons of World War Two covers weapons carried by British destroyers of this era, with additional appendices devoted to earlier guns still in service, and destroyer-caliber weapons only mounted in larger ships.

Editorial Reviews

“For anyone wishing to super-detail any British destroyer of this era, this book looks to be a real must-have. Highly recommended!” —Nautical Research Guild's Model Ship World
“If the design and employment of naval weapons is of any interest to you, [we] can guarantee you will spend hours examining the pages of this book, for nowhere else will you find the wealth of technical information displayed on these pages. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then these drawings are worth ten thousand words.” —Naval Historical Foundation
