The text part of this book describes history of the ship's construction and service. This is accompanied by more than 100 color illustrations showing HMS Hood's appearance in her final configuration, during battle of the Denmark Strait, 24 May 1941. Elements that are shown in detail include superstructures, armament, boats, equipment, rig, etc. Blueprints in 1:350, 1:200, 1:100 and 1:50 scales (general views and details) are included on a separate sheet. The publication is a great reference for building a detailed model of HMS Hood.

"The bulk of the book, after a short (but quite useful and informative) introduction, is devoted to page after page of full color three dimensional renderings of almost every imaginable aspect of the ship. Their clarity and the color processing itself are simply excellent and of enormous use in making clear the myriad of details that even the finest scale drawings invariable fail to illuminate and the most comprehensive photographic coverage cannot reveal..."
