THE BATTLESHIP DREADNOUGHT: Anatomy of the Ship
Launched in 1906, HMS Dreadnought was the first 'all-big-gun' battleship and as such revolutionized battleship design for more than a generation. She was built at Portsmouth in 14 months, a record which has never been equaled, and when she was launched she was superior in both firepower and speed to anything then afloat.
Perhaps even more radical than her design was the proposal to adopt Parsons turbines, which at the time had been hardly tested. Though she saw little action during her career, her influence was profound and she gave her name to a class of ship that dominated the high seas for more than a generation.
As part of the renowned Anatomy of the Ship series, this book provides the finest documentation, with a complete set of superb line drawings, supported by technical details and a record of the ship's service history. Incredibly detailed and impressive.
