Launched in 1906, HMS Dreadnought was the first 'all-big-gun' battleship and as such revolutionised battleship design for more than a generation. She was built at Portsmouth in 14 months, a record which has never been equalled, and when she was launched she was superior in both firepower and speed to anything then afloat. Perhaps even more radical than her design was the proposal to adopt Parsons turbines which at the time had been hardly tested. Though she saw little action during her career, her influence was profound and she gave her name to a class of ship that dominated the high seas for more than a generation.

The 'Anatomy of the Ship' series aims to provide the finest documentation of individual ships and ship types ever published. What makes the series unique is a complete set of superbly executed line drawings, both the conventional type of plan as well as explanatory views, with fully descriptive keys. These are supported by technical details and a record of the ship's service history.

John Roberts is widely recognised for his contributions to warship literature. He was editor of Warship for six years and is the co-author of the standard works on British battleships and cruisers of the Second World War period. His superb warship plans led one authority to describe him as 'the best draughtsman in the UK' and so he is the ideal author to contribute to the Anatomy series. His two previous volumes, on Hood and Intrepid, were widely acclaimed.

About the Author:

John Roberts is widely recognized for his contributions to warship literature. He was editor of Warship for six years and is the coauthor of the standard works on British battleships and cruisers of the Second World War period. His superb warship plans led one authority to describe him as “the best draughtsman in the UK.” His two previous volumes for Conway, on the Dreadnought and Intrepid, were widely acclaimed.

Review:

Stunning photos to accompany the line drawings; those on Dreadnought are particularly good. The subtitle to these reprints in soft back, the ultimate references to the world s great ships from the inside out says it all. * Scuttlebutt Magazine *
