British Battlecruisers 1939-45

Be the first to review this product

When war broke out in 1939, only three true battlecruisers remained in the Royal Navy including HMS Hood, the world's largest and fastest capital ship for much of her life, which would be destroyed in action against the German battleship 'Bismarck'. Of the remaining two battlecruisers, Repulse and Renown one was sunk by Japanese aircraft off Singapore, whilst the other served with distinction until the end of the war. This book traces the pre-war development of these spectacular warships, then describes their wartime exploits, using this to demonstrate their operational & mechanical performance and examines what life was like on these wartime battlecruisers when they sailed into action.
