From the cover: “This is the latest in a series that provides ship modellers with all they need to know about a famous class or type of warship and associated model kits.
The volume follows on from ShipCraft 11, which dealt with British inter-war destroyers, to cover the wartime designs — easily distinguished from their predecessors by a single-funnelled profile. The powerful ‘J’ to ‘N’ flotillas were followed by more austere War Emergency designs, incrementally improved and enlarged as the war progressed, concluding with the radically different ‘Battle’ class, designed for the aircraft-dominated war in the Pacific.
With its unparalleled level of visual information — paint schemes, models, line drawings and photographs — it is simply the best reference for any model maker setting out to build one of these handsome little ships.”
