Cruisers and La Guerre de Course

Cruisers and La Guerre de Course
Cruisers and La Guerre de Course is a rare achievement, combining extremely fine art and detailed yet smooth text. The water color illustrations are of the highest pictorial quality and also meticulously accurate. The main author and artist, Ian Marshall depicts his warships in harbors or against shorelines, providing both a historic background and a precise sense of the ships' scale.(The painting of Graf Spee's squadron in the Magellan Straits provides a beautiful example.) The text is extremely well written, carefully researched and offers a clear narrative of cruiser development over the late 19th and early 20th centuries. For lovers of naval history and maritime art, this book is a must. I recommend it with the highest praise.
