Friedman's British Cruisers book

Post by Byron Angel » Sun May 29, 2011 7:20 pm

Anyone here have any recommendations as to whether this book is worth acquiring?

I'm most interested in the value of Friedman's treatment of the pre-WW1 and WW1 British CL and AC classes.

Comments/advice most appreciated.

There is no coverage of the ACs. The first in-depth coverage is of the Bristol class, and the pre-WW1 coverage is devoted to CLs, although I don't think that it is markedly better than R&Rs coverage, and the book really focuses on post WW1 treaty cruisers.
