By Bruce Taylor (Author)

Representing five years of research, The Battlecruiser HMS Hood is easily the most comprehensive book ever published on this great warship. 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.
