About the Author:

Bernard Ireland has spent his working life with the Royal Naval Scientific Service and its successor organizations. To an already deep interest in naval history he has thus added a considerable in-depth knowledge of warship technology, enabling him to assess a design's strengths and weaknesses. He has also acted as freelance technical illustrator to major shipping companies. He has written 30 books on maritime technological or historical subjects, and has also contributed to many partworks and journals.
