Les Cuirasses 'Echantillons' Tome.1

Product code:  80231NAV
French Language book. This book includes the characteristics and history of three battleships Brennus, Carnot and Charles Martel. Despite its youthful setbacks, the Brennus is most interesting because it breaks sharply with its predecessors with the caliber unit of its main armament in closed turrets of 340 mm and a secondary armament with the excellent gun of 164.7 mm rapid fire. When compared with the foreign battleships of the same period, he holds his rank well. Throughout his career he will...

Kriegsmarine: The Illustrated History of the German Navy in WWII

Product code:  49523NAV
The German Navy, or Kriegsmarine, fought a valiant campaign in World War II. Though her surface fleet was small, German ships such as the Graf Spee, Bismarck and Tirpitz tied down a substantial amount of Allied naval resources for much of the war, and the U-boat fleet almost starved Britain into surrender. Kriegsmarine is a pictorial record of Germany's naval forces before and during World War II: from the rebirth of the U-boat fleet and the new pocket battleships; through the early naval campai...

French Armoured Cruisers: 1887-1932

Product code:  41189NAV
Of all the threats faced by the Royal Navy during the first years of the twentieth century, the one which stood out was the risk to Britain's sea lines of communication posed by France's armoured cruisers. Fast, well-armed and well-protected, these ships could have evaded any attempted blockade of the French ports and, supported by a worldwide network of overseas bases, could potentially have caused havoc on the trade routes. Between 1898 and 1901 the French laid down thirteen ships, and complet...

New Vanguard 274: British Escort Carriers 1941-45

Product code:  36250NAV
The typical Escort Carrier was small, slow and vulnerable, but it could carry about 18 aircraft, which gave the convoys a real chance to detect and sink dangerous U-Boats. Collectively, their contribution to an Allied victory was immense, particularly in the long and gruelling campaigns fought in the Atlantic and Arctic. Illustrated throughout with detailed full-colour artwork and contemporary photographs, this fascinating study explores in detail how these adaptable ships had such an enormous i...

British Submarines in Two World Wars

Product code:  38165NAV
Although the Royal Navy did not invent the submarine, Norman Friedman's new book demonstrates how innovative the service was, to an extent which few will recognise. Its submarines performed well in combat in both world wars, and often in unheralded ways. Few will be aware that in 1914 Britain had the largest submarine fleet in the world, and that at the end of World War I it had some of the largest and most unusual of all submarines - whose origins and design are all detailed.
