For those of you that believe that one photo is worth 1,000 words, here is a new photo CD with about 236,000 words in high resolution. These are high quality images that were taken at various periods during the war of a variety of French Navy warships. These included:
- Aircraft Carrier Bearn
- Battleship Lorraine
- Battleship Richelieu
- Cruiser Elime Bertin
- Cruiser George Leygues
- Cruiser Jeanne d'Arc
- Cruiser Le Gloire
- Cruiser Montcalm
- Cruiser Tourville
- Destroyer La Fantasque
- Destroyer Le Malin
- Destroyer Le Triomphant
- Destroyer Le Terrible
- and more
In addition to the above, the CD covers a variety of Corvettes, Frigates, Merchant Ships, Sloops, and Submarines. The photos are high resolution many over 3000 pixels wide.
As with the Somers Class release (reviewed here), this CD-ROM is menu-driven and displayed on your web browser to allow you to navigate through the informative pages and view the high-resolution content. If you're a naval historian and/or naval modeler, you'll find lots of material here that you won't see in such clear resolution in print.
This title is recommended!
