^ An excellent read. I have both volumes (hardback versions) stored for safe keeping but could never understand why volume two, The Hunted is always so much more expensive.

I consider this the daddy of them all. A bit technical in places and not cheap. In fact back in the day I remember sending a copy to Kpt Lehmann as a xmas present.

I haven't been reading this so much as I've been soaking it in.





I own the other two volumes in this series and I'm utterly blown away at what an amazing draftsman John Lambert was. I've spent hours studying his "Anatomy of the Ship" books on the submarine Alliance and the Fairmile D MGBs, but this series just takes the detail to another level.
