The National Maritime Museum in Greenwich houses the largest collection of scale ship models in the world, many of which are official, contemporary artefacts made by the craftsmen of the navy or the shipbuilders themselves, and ranging from the mid seventeenth century to the present day. As such they represent a three-dimensional archive of unique importance and authority. Treated as historical evidence, they offer more detail than even the best plans, and demonstrate exactly what the ships looked like in a way that even the finest marine painter could not achieve. ??This book is one of a series that takes a selection of the best models to tell the story of specific ship types _ in this case, the various classes of warship that fought in the First World War, from dreadnoughts to coastal motor boats. It reproduces a large number of model photos, all in full colour, and including many close-up and detail views. These are captioned in depth, but many are also annotated to focus attention on interesting or unusual features. Although pictorial in emphasis, the book weaves the pictures into an authoritative text, producing an unusual and attractive form of technical history.

This second volume in the ShipShape series covers the development of one of the largest, fastest and most charismatic warship types. Combining the armament of a battleship with the speed of a cruiser in some of the largest hulls then built, these ships were the cutting edge of early 20th-century naval technology. The brainchild of Admiral Fisher, the concept of this class began as large, fast armoured cruisers for trade protection, but the last-minute decision to equip them with 12-inch guns led them to be seen as a high-speed element of the battle fleet. The British battlecruisers fought in numerous battles in World War I, such as the battles of the Falklands, Heligoland Bight and Dogger Bank. But it is for the battle of Jutland in 1916, when three battlecruisers exploded and sank in one day, that these ships are best remembered.
