The authors give a detailed account of the planning, design, and construction and the numerous prewar and wartime modifications of the individual ships of each cruiser class. Their technical particulars are found in the text itself, as well as in extensive data tables. Among the illustrations are more than 250 sets of fully detailed line drawings, traced for original blueprints, that show outboard and inboard profiles, hull lines, deck plans, sections, internal arrangments, machinery, armor, and bridge structures. Prewar and wartime histories of all the ships are also reported, with ship movements, combat experience, damage, refits, modifications, and final fate listed.

Synopsis:

The Imperial Japanese Navy of World War II was the third largest in the world and had some of the most powerful warships of the time. This work, based on Japanese-language sources and hitherto unpublished material, examines the cruisers of the Imperial Japanese Navy, ships which were among the most powerful of their type and whose rumoured capabilities had considerable influence on Allied building programmes. As well as covering cruisers' design, development, modifications, capabilities and operational histories, this book goes beyond the ships themselves to examine larger issues of Japanese defense policy, naval organization and strategy, and technological development.
