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.
