SHIPS OF ITALIAN LINE Volume I (1861-1875): Ironclad Corvette, Frigates, Gunboats
The first volume of the series 'The ships of Italy' published in 1962 by George Augustus Giorgerini and Nani was dedicated to the ships of the line of the Italian Navy, which included all of these units classified as such at the time, including aircraft carriers. This new volume is the first armored ships, those born around 1860, with the classification of 'armored frigates,' the smaller corvettes and ironclad ironclad gunboats, and the only example of a ram armored towers. It begins with an examination of individual ships or classes of ships, dwelling longer on the facts of the battle of Lissa, which most of them participated. Then put in a proper light the activities of vessels during missions abroad. The subsequent volumes will be subject to pluricalibro battleships and battleships of the first and second world war. Includes 122 illustrations in b / w and 24 color, with 13 color profiles in large folded tables, and dozens of drawings.1 vol, 378 pgs 2012 ITALY
