This new book provides an excellent set of images with concise text in review of German destroyers of WWII. – Highly Recommended German destroyers were numerous members of the surface fleet and broadly similar although there was considerable detail variation between ships, even between sisters. They were versatile and powerful ships in their class, comparing with many light cruisers in the fleets of other nations. Warship modelling has come a long way in the last 50 years. The author has included coverage of a selection of available kits in various scales of which the 1:700 scale is probably the most popular. War gaming has encouraged the development of smaller scales and 1:1200 scale models now include considerable detail. At the other end of available kits, 1:100 scale destroyers make impressive models and the author has provide much detail of availability of kits and components. The archive images in black and white are accompanied by modern full colour images of kits and completed models. There are high quality plans of German destroyers and side views in camouflage. The amount of information on the subject is considerable and well-presented.
