Can't really fault it,
This review is from: Clydebank Battlecruisers: Forgotten Photographs from John Brown's Shipyard (Hardcover)
This book could easily have been a pot-boiler with a selection of familar photos reproduced to an indifferent standard. But instead, the reader is presented with an excellent selection of pin-sharp photos, which really bring this shipyard and these ships to life; in all honesty, they cannot really be faulted. The informative informative captions are just the icing on the cake.
The "angle" might be Clydebank, but anyone with the slightest interest in the Grand Fleet will enjoy this book and re-read it many times. It is worth buying alone for the superb series of photos of HMS Tiger, almost ready to be commissioned in late 1914 - and arguably the most handsome major warship of the first world war.
When one considers what it offers, this books is cheap at the price; snap up a copy while you can. I strongly suspect this is one of those books which, once out of print, will soon command a healthy premium over the original price.
