From the huge 15-inch guns carried by the Bismarck to the smallest machine gun used by coastal forces, this comprehensive encyclopedia covers every German artillery piece mounted afloat during World War II. All marks and variations of these weapons are described individually, including their mountings and the ammunition fired, along with extensive tabular data. The feature that makes this book unique, however, is the range and detail of the illustrations, including close-up photos, three-view drawings, and computer-generated full-color representations of the guns from every angle, making this the most complete reference available.

About the Author:

Miroslaw Skwiot, a Polish expert on World War II naval technology, has written widely on both WWII warships and weapon systems.

Review:

The superb illustrations contribute very largely to its success. The photographs are supplemented by detailed plans and drawings of the main types of gun and mounting, and by computer - generated illustrations from all angles. These illustrations are in colour and include renderings of the badges mounted prewar on some individually named turrets. This book is essential reading for any student of naval guns, while anyone interested in the wartime German Navy will find a photographic record of the Kriegsmarine which rivals that in any other publication. Those who already have all four parts of the Polish/English bilingual edition may hesitate, but the hardback will certainly outlast them, and for its size the book is very reasonably priced.
