Classic Warships has released the second in a series of Shipcraft Special books, this time Steve Backer brings us in in-depth look at the Grand Fleet Battlecruisers from World War one era.  This is a hardbound book which covers the development of British Battlecruisers and covers all fifteen ships from the Invincible to the Furious.  This book is jam packed with ship plans, close-up photographs and color references.  Included is an extensive gallery of scale models and models products from 1/1250 to 1/48 scale.  Fantastic illustrations are provided by George Richardson.  This book provides the modeler with everything they need to know about the British Grand Fleet Battlecruisers.  I highly recommend this book for your library.

Thanks goes out to Steve Wiper of for the review sample!
