The Richard Perkins warship identification albums form one of the most detailed studies of the changes to the appearance of Royal Navy ships ever undertaken. Because this unique, hand-drawn manuscript artifact is in the care of the National Maritime Museum, it has rarely been seen by anyone besides the museum's curators, who use the albums on a daily basis and regard them as a precious resource. This monumental work, in collaboration with the Museum, is a superbly produced multi-volume edition that captures all the qualities of the original. Every page is reproduced at full-size, making the extensive hand-written annotation readable, while the fine-line drawings retain all the colors that Perkins used to denote appearance differences and alterations. Following the Museum's binding arrangement, this second volume of the series covers armored ships from Warrior to the Royal Sovereigns (all later capital ships from the Majestic class onwards can be found in Volume I), as well as monitors, seaplane, and aircraft carriers.

The USS Texas was built when dreadnought battleships were kings of the seas. It was the world s most powerful battleship when first commissioned in 1914, and for over a century it fought many battles. Some took place while the Texas served as a warship in the US Navy in World Wars I and II. Since becoming a museum ship and war memorial in 1948, it has fought a longer and more difficult struggle as it combats the ravages of time for its very survival. Throughout its existence, the Texas has made history, leaving a wealth of fascinating stories in its wake."

Winston Churchill called it "the Beast." It was said to be unsinkable. More than thirty military operations failed to destroy it. Eliminating the Tirpitz, Hitler's mightiest warship, a 52,000-ton behemoth, became an Allied obsession. In The Hunt for Hitler's Warship, Patrick Bishop tells the epic story of the men who would not rest until the Tirpitz lay at the bottom of the sea. In November of 1944, with the threat to Russian supply lines increasing and Allied forces needing reinforcements in the Pacific, a raid as audacious as any Royal Air Force operation of the war was launched, under the command of one of Britain's greatest but least-known war heroes, Wing Commander Willie Tait. Patrick Bishop draws on decades of experience as a foreign war correspondent to paint a vivid picture of this historic clash of the Royal Air Force's Davids versus Hitler's Goliath of naval engineering. Readers will not be able to put down this account of one of World War II's most dramatic showdowns.

The Richard Perkins warship identification albums form one of the most detailed studies ever undertaken of the changes to the appearance of Royal Navy ships. However, it is a unique hand-drawn manuscript artifact in the care of the National Maritime Museum, so despite its value it is rarely seen by anyone besides the museum's curators, for whom it is a precious resource, used on an almost daily basis. The first publication of this monumental work in a superbly produced multi-volume edition that captures all the qualities of the original has been possible because of the collaboration with the museum. Every page is reproduced at full size, making the extensive hand-written annotation readable, while the fine-line drawings retain all the colors that Perkins used to denote appearance differences and alterations. Following the museum's binding arrangement, the third volume of the series is the first half of the coverage of all cruisers from the Amazon-class corvettes of 1865 to the Belfast-class of 1939; the second half constitutes Volume IV. Highlights of this first part include armored cruisers, the so-called large light cruisers, and the cruisers of the inter-war period.
