As an enthusiastic reader of naval history, I greatly looked forward to this book, but I was disappointed to find the picture captions and text riddled with errors, such as having HMS Duke of York armed with 15 inch, rather than 14 inch, guns, and describing SMS Schlesien as a dreadnought, rather than a pre-dreadnought. The colour artwork, often the high point of other works in this series, was crude and inaccurate. A great pity that the authors and the editorial staff at Osprey couldn't be bothered to check their work, and thus produced this insult of a book, the very last example of their stuff I shall ever buy.

In comman with other books about the Kriegsmarine by this author the value of the content is badly marred by basic errors. The author has completely failed to notice the distinction between Dreadnoughts and their precursers the PRE-DREADNOUGHTS as an example. THe artwork is very poor, the drawing of Sharnhorst is labelled as 'as built' but is obviosly post refit. I see there is an editor for the series, ween't they able the edit out the problems?
