The Battleship Dreadnought


This is a revised version of Roberts’ 1992 profile of this significant warship which gave its name to a whole new generation of battleships. The book forms part of Conway’s Anatomy Of The Ship series and is split into three sections beginning with an account of her fairly uneventful career. The history is complemented by a very thorough description of her equipment from her guns through to her telephone system. The photographic section begins with building shots followed by images of her in service. The final two thirds of the book are devoted to a comprehensive set of technical drawings
