Imperial Japanese Warships Illustrated / Kaiserlich Japanische Kriegsschiffe im Bild, Bd. 2
Following the already published volume 1, this illustrated book deals with the following aspects:
- The "Congo" replacement ship, an unprecedented scandal.
- "Nisshin" seaplane tender & Fast minelayer, small submarine carrier.
- "Akizuki"-class anti-aircraft destroyers.
- Small submarines of classes A to D (Kôryû) and carrier ships.
- U-Cruiser Class B (Class I 15).
- Marine transporter.
- Transporter second class types #1091 and #103.
- Fast bomb target ships of the "Ohama" class.
- The loss of the destroyers "Ariake" and "Mikazuki".
Numerous historical, partly full-page photos with detailed captions in German/English (including aerial photographs taken by US reconnaissance), show the ships, their deck superstructures, their armaments and crews at the moorings as well as on the high seas - including gripping shots from the middle of the battle!
Numerous line drawings (full views and details) illustrate the structure of individual ships, technical tables created especially for this volume, inform about construction data, main details and fates of the vehicles.
The graphic design and image processing of this volume with many previously unpublished shots and brilliant line drawings were created in the proven Waldemar Trojca quality.
The accompanying text, also completely in German/English, informs about technical and operational history, conversions and modernizations. In addition to the detailed technical information in words and pictures, there is also information on the political and military strategic background of the types of ships depicted, their development and commissioning.
168 b/w pictures, more than 100 line and detailed drawings, many tables with technical data and 6 maps.
