Anatomy of the Ship: Battleships Yamato and Musashi

£24.99

Product description

Published in 2017 by Conway/Bloomsbury, in their Anatomy of the Ship series.

An incredibly detailed work with more than a thousand scale drawings and 350 colour 3D views. These two ships were two of the largest battleships in the Japanese fleet and both were sunk in battle towards the end of the Second World War. Full of fascinating details for anyone with an interest in the military history of the period.

Equipped with the largest guns and heaviest armour and with the greatest displacement of any ship ever built, the Yamato proved to be a formidable opponent to the US Pacific Fleet in the Second World War. The book contains a full description of the design and construction of the battleship including wartime modifications, and a career history followed by a substantial pictorial section with rare onboard views of Yamato and her sister ship Musashi, a comprehensive portfolio of more than 1,020 perspective line artworks, 350 colour 3D views, and 30 photographs. The wreck of Musashi has been recently discovered to great excitement in Japan, renewing interest in these iconic warships.

In a very good condition with very little sign of any wear. Fresh and clean with a sound binding.
