One of the finest capital ship designs of all time, the Warspite represented the ultimate development of the revolutionary dreadnought design and the prototypes of the modern fast battleship. Her fighting career spanned two generations--from the Battle of Jutland in 1916 through World War II. Originally published in 1986 and now revised, this new edition joins the acclaimed Anatomy of the Ship series to provide the most detailed description and illustrations of the Warspite available anywhere. A pictorial section contains numerous photographs with close-up and onboard views of ship equipment and spaces. Over 100 keyed drawings illustrate every detail of the ship, including hull construction machinery, superstructure, armament, boats and aircraft, and fittings. Such comprehensive drawings offer ship buffs, historians and model makers novel insight into the technicalities of an important ship type. Information on appearance changes and interwar reconstruction also is included.
