Beautifully illustrated, this large-format book is the first to deal with on the handsome but expensive ships that had such a significant effect on American naval policy at the turn of the century. With rare photographs and specially commissioned drawings, it offers a comprehensive design history of the twelve armored cruisers built between 1888 and 1910. Anecdotes of life on board the cruisers and a lively description of the Spanish-American War further widen the book's appeal.
