AA Military Research has released its next photo-CD in its naval series, this one entitled Royal Navy Destroyers Part One. This title covers the Hunt and Tribal-class destroyers in Royal Navy, Commonwealth, and allied service. As with the other titles in this series, the title is organized and navigated through a series of web pages to allow you to review and locate areas of interest or to simply browse the breadth of this title's coverage.

In the introduction, the author provides an overview of these two classes of destroyers and the scope of this title's coverage. The reader can then drill down further:

  • Hunt Class
    • Type I
    • Type II
    • Type III
    • Type IV
  • Tribal Class
    • British Ships
    • Canadian Ships
    • Australian Ships

In each of the subcategories, the author provides the specifications for each sub-type or each Commonwealth variant from displacement to armament. The photos are high resolution many over 3000 pixels wide. 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!

This title is available directly from the publisher at AA Military Research.

My sincere thanks to AA Military Research for this review sample!
