REVIEWS
-

“The naval actions covered provide the reader with a clear but abbreviated account of the course of the individual naval battle or campaign being discussed. The naval story as told examines both strategic and tactical objectives of the German Navy and the Royal Navy as they fight each other.”

- PowerShips

"Uniquely, there are QR codes which give access to various online resources...These are every  bit as good as the book itself and greatly expand on the narrative within the book. It is thoroughly recommended for the general reader and naval enthusiast alike.’’

"Going from my first reaction to seeing this book, it is a stunner….Throughout this first half of the book there are some superb archive photos of the Arizona, showing her life before that fatal day in 1941. An amazing collection of images and memories... It even includes three QR codes which you can scan with your phone to view video footage of veterans memories and video from the sunken hull today. As I said at the outset, stunning."
