Clear rating
One of the Friedman series, and perhaps a bit better than his earlier books on battleships, cruisers, etc., in terms of examining the US design histories. A must-have for any serious scholar of British cruiser design history, which each class being r...more

It's about time we see a book on Italian armor! More could have been done on armor plate quality issues, especially in that Italian armor was exceptional. I would have also liked armor penetration tables. That would have been a nice touch, but hardly...more

How could anyone not like this book? It's a spoof, of course, but a damn good one. I'll not rehash a very familiar story, but what I liked best was the wring. It is a terrible matter-of-fact tone. Depressed robots, Volgons, mice, all sorts of neat ch...more
