Revue de presse

"Mark Stille's Imperial Japanese Navy Battleships 1941-45 covers the twelve big Japanese battleships that saw service during World War II. The author's use of primary sources and dramatic photos provides a visual survey of the ships: in fact all the coverage are powerful in original resources and vintage illustrations." -The California Bookwatch (October 2008)"...looking at the color plates for each class, including some cutaways, I imagine that this book would be a great resource for modelers. The single-page appendix on the paint schemes of Japanese WW2-era battleships would likely be a great niche reference."- C. Peter Chen, World War II Database (August 2008)"An excellent book on a most interesting subject and one that I am positive you will find to be of interest. One that will be pulled from the shelves time after time and one I can highly recommend to you."- Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (July 2008).

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Imperial Japanese Navy of World War 2 surpassed the Allied and Axis fleets in innovation and technology. This title covers the 12 Japanese battleships that saw service between 1941-45. Each class is considered in turn in light of its design and construction, its armament and wartime modifications. The author, Mark Stille, also uses first-hand accounts and dramatic photographs to tell the story of these mighty battleships at war, including major engagements during the raid at Pearl Harbor and the battle of Midway. He also examines the wider context of Japanese battleship development by looking at the naval strategy and cult of the battleship. This title will fascinate any naval enthusiast, and the detailed color plates will make it essential for modelers of the period.

An Excellent Addition to the New Vanguard Series 31 juillet 2008
Par R. A Forczyk - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Although the story of the Japanese super-battleship Yamato has attracted some attention over the years, the history of the Imperial Japanese Navy's entire battleship force in the Second World War has generally received much less attention. In Osprey's New Vanguard No. 146, Imperial Japanese Navy Battleships 1941-45, naval historian Mark Stille provides an excellent summary of the 12 ships that formed the Japanese battle line during the Pacific War. Overall, the book is very well written and packaged, with excellent photos and color plates on each class. Unlike earlier Osprey New Vanguard titles, where all the color plates are in the center - requiring frequent page flipping - the color plates are instead interspersed in each section, which is much more reader-friendly.

The volume begins with a short introduction that covers how battleships figured in pre-war Japanese naval strategy and doctrine and how the Imperial Navy set about developing the ships it needed to implement this strategy. In short, the Japanese took to heart the lessons of the battles of Tsushima (1905) and Jutland (1916) and their war plans envisioned a decisive battleship vs. battleship action that would decide the conflict against their likely opponent - the U.S. Navy. However, due to economic weakness and diplomatic agreements, the IJN could not build as many battleships as the USN and instead opted to build `better' warships, with bigger guns and more armor than their opponent. With bigger guns, the Japanese expected to open fire at 37,000 yards - outranging American battleships by about 4,000 yards and theoretically providing a significant edge in battleship actions. Although this `cult of the battleship' has often been criticized, author Mark Stille points out that these decisions were made at a point when naval air power was still in its infancy and not yet deemed a major threat to battleships. However, as the author also points out, 6 of the 11 Japanese battleships sunk during the Pacific War were done in by aircraft.

The heart of this volume lies in the five short sections (total 30 pages) on each Japanese battleship class: Kongo, Fuso, Ise, Nagato and Yamato. Each sections includes sub-sections on design and construction, armament, service modifications, wartime service, a color plate and a small data plate. Many of the B/W photos used in these sections, from the Yamato Museum, have not been printed in the West before. These sections provide a very nice capsule history of each ship and the author provides a number of insights that explain the performance of Japanese battleships. As he notes, "the quality of Japanese battleship gunnery was mediocre during the war," citing the low number of hits achieved off Guadalcanal and later, Leyte Gulf. One action he does not include occurred on March 1, 1942, when battleships Hiei and Kirishima engaged the destroyer USS Edsall off Java, firing 297 14-inch and 132 6-inch rounds and scoring only a single hit. After that poor performance, the Japanese threw out the pre-war idea of long-range gunnery duels which in practice, wasted ammunition and opted for significantly reduced gunnery ranges. In doing this, the Japanese abandoned much of the rationale for their battleships and in the Solomons used them at point-blank ranges which enabled even U.S. cruisers and destroyers to inflict serious damage on them. The author also notes the poor performance of Japanese anti-aircraft guns and the failure to develop proximity shells, as well as low-quality radar that prevented accurate night gunnery control.

Amazingly, it was only the older Kongo-class that made any significant contribution to the Japanese war effort, particularly in actions in the Solomons, while the best Japanese battleships sat at most of the war well behind the lines. The author notes that super-battleship Yamato was dubbed `Hotel Yamato,' during its inactive time as fleet flagship. Although the growing lethality of airpower rendered Japanese battleships increasingly vulnerable by 1942, he does conclude that, "in the six-month struggle for Guadalcanal, the Imperial Japanese Navy's battleships had the potential to make a significant contribution to a Japanese victory," but instead the IJN only committed two Kongo class battleships, which were lost. He makes an interesting contrast here between the suddenly-cautious IJN leaders who refused to risk their best ships in the Solomons struggle, while the Americans boldly committed their two newest battleships which produced significant results. The author comments that American airpower in the Solomons was too weak at the time to counter a large force of Japanese battleships and a major commitment could have reversed the American build-up. By the time that the IJN decided to commits its battle line in 1944 to the defense of the Philippines it was too late and American airpower had grown exponentially. Thus, this volume provides an excellent case study on how faulty doctrine can lead to poor weapons development choices, which in turn begets poorly-considered operational planning.

An Excellent Primer/Reference Work! 15 novembre 2008
Par R. Douglas Johnson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This work takes a subject with comparatively little written on it and casts a fairly clear light on it.

The book is good balance between a technological and a operational history of Japanese battleships of WWII. Each class and ship is given a short, but clear history concerning initial development, subsequent refits and operational use. The effects of other nations development on these ships is also given comment. From an operational standpoint it sheds light on the tactical and strategic views that spawned the ships. The colour plates and pictures are well placed in the text and give these ships some much needed attention in English. For the most part these ships are only mentioned in US accounts as ships sunk, with good reason admittedly.

While the book does not shine any new light on the subject it does examine Japanese battleships clearly and thoroughly for the size of the book. For this reason alone it is a worthwhile purchase and will hepl readers of WWII naval battles more thoroughly understand the participating capitol ships of Japan.

Good, but not of the serious model builder. 9 décembre 2008
Par Chever - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a really good reference book for a basic introduction to IJN Battleships. The photos are good quality and the drawings are well done to, about two or three of each class. If you are a model builder like me, this book really won't help alot, there are not enough photos or drawings for a specific ship to really be of much use. It is mainly for use as a general reference.

WWII Japanese Battleships in a Nutshell! 3 mars 2009
Par Mike O'Connor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Despite a dismal war record, IJN battleships can rightly claim the title of being the most distinctive warships ever. With their impossibly high 'pagoda tower' superstructures, they were unmistakeable. Mark Stille surveys the dozen IJN battleships that saw service during WWII in this concise, nicely illustrated volume, #146 in the Osprey 'New Vanguard' series.

Considering the pre-war importance Japanese military planners invested in the battleships, the war record of Japan's battlewagons is spotty at best. In many ways Kongo, Hiei, Mutsu, Yamashiro, Haruna and the other IJN BBs spent the war looking for a role to play. By war's end all but one had been destroyed including the super-battleships Yamato and Musashi with little to show in return.

After a short introduction to Japanese naval strategy, tactics and IJN BB development, author Stile examines these distinctive ships class by class, discussing design and construction, armament, modifications, service career, etc. Over 40 b&w and color photographs, profiles and artworks help bring the ships to life.

Sea war buffs will enjoy IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY BATTLESHIPS 1941-45. It's a well-done and informative summary of some of history's most unique warships. Recommended.

Short but comprehensive 20 février 2010
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is a very good book if you are interested in the evolution of battleship development in the Japanese navy from WWI through WWII. It covers all major classes and has pictures of most of the battleships. There are excellent color renderings of each major class including a fine 2-page cut-away of Yamato. The book is a bit short at 48 pages and the author a bit opinionated but well worth the money and a good reference for anyone intereseted in modeling any of the IJN battleships.
