For a book of this quality and level of unique illustration, it is already at an aggressive price, although it may be beyond the pocket of many who would love to read it. Fortunately Pen & Sword is famous for its special offers and there are still lending libraries that will stock copies. For anyone with an interest in the sea, ships, shipbuilding and WWI, this is a book that must not be missed. Outstanding!!!

DESCRIPTION: The author was brought up in a shipbuilding family and his books always convey his pride in and love of the Clyde shipyards. Anyone who has read the author’s work before will need no recommendation to this work. It fits neatly into the story told in other best selling books from the author and this new work brings out the story of how John Brown’s Clydebank played a very important role in the naval campaigns of WWI. The text is concise and fully supports the outstanding collection of rare photographs. This is not a coffee table photo essay, but a book of substance that is lavishly illustrated to tell the rich story of the ships and men that immortalize Clydebank at war.

The end papers carry side views of the range of ships constructed, maintained and updated on Clydebank. They range from the liner Aquitania to the iconic and tragic HMS Hood, with warships of all the intermediate sizes.

For a book of this quality and level of unique illustration, it is already at an aggressive price, although it may be beyond the pocket of many who would love to read it. Fortunately Pen & Sword is famous for its special offers and there are still lending libraries that will stock copies. For anyone with an interest in the sea, ships, shipbuilding and WWI, this is a book that must not be missed. Outstanding!!!
