French Battleships by Dumas

Post by marcelo_malara »

I received my copy today, as promised I will comment on it. Bear in mind that I DID NOT read it, but as I have many books on queue, it will be many months before I will.

The book looks good, big format, good paper. It starts with an introduction about the old BBs, followed by a chapter about the treaty period, then chapters about Dunkerque class, design history, caracteristics and service history. Then Jean Bart and Richelieu, the same. Many diagrams about them, sections, plans, machinery, side colour plates at diferent years. The service history is complement with maps of the actions they were involved.

I would say that it is OK, go ahead!!!

Marcelo,

As you know I can´t stand you having a book and I don´t. So, did you find it at amazon? How much?

Best regards,

Karl
