Acorazados de la segunda guerra mundial

Post by hans zurbriggen » Mon Feb 03, 2020 11:55 am

Hello,
sounds like a very interesting new book, from Manuel P.Gonzales Lopez. A technical study of 387 pages.
It is only available in Spanish afaik. My spanish is worse than my english.

Hello jabeque,
congratulations. Very nice work, filling a gap in existing books. Drawings allow to compate battleship protection in way that is easy to understand.
I will get the book! Can you please tell us whether Amazon is the best way to order it ?

Hello everybody,

just a last post to quickly comment about the wonderful Manuel's book. I do believe it is an outstanding work, summarizing all the aspects of WWII battleships in a very clear and synthetic way, without missing any important consideration.
The conclusions are very balanced and unbiased, putting under the correct light both the pro's and con's of all WWII battleships, avoiding the usual annoying "nationalistic propaganda" in favour of a certain battleship design.

I have the book and I have read it all (despite not speaking Spanish). I can strongly recommend it. Hopefully an Italian version (and an English too, who knows) may be available one day, but the graphical and tables information in it would be more than enough to largely justify the investment.

Bye, Alberto

Well done, Senor Gonzalez. Best wishes for successful sales of your book.
I used to travel to Madrid on business: beautiful city center and some very memorable (in the best way) meals.
