Description du produit

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.

Each Mark Stille and Paul Wright collaboration provides the enthusiast with an extremely well-organized, concise and visually appealing summary of a historically significant class or classes of warships. Stille's lucid writing and Wright's fine artwork consistently place their entries among the best in the New Vanguard series.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 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.

The japanese combined fleet possessed the largest battleships ever built by human beings. The Yamato and the Musashi were the biggest in the world. If you add in the Kongo, Fuso, and Nagato classes, the japanese possessed a formidable fleet of capital ships. However, the problem was the manner in which the japnese used these ships. Because of the japanese militaries belief in the one decisive battle concept, the battleships were kept out of many of the wars opening battles. By the time the japanese decided to use these powerful vessels, they were bereft of air cover, because most of japans carrier fleet had been sunk. The 18 inch guns of the Yamato and Musashi were ineffective in their roles, they were both sunk, never having achieved the goal of their creation. JRV
3.0 étoiles sur 5 The Imperial Fleet 10 janvier 2014

A short but comprehensive overview of the Japanese battleships that were in service during the Pacific War. Each of the five classes of ship are given a chapter with sub-chapters on Design & construction, armament, service modifications, and wartime service. The digital edition is better priced but is still pricey ($10) considering the length of the book. The book is mainly purposed for reference material. Kongo- Hiei- Haruna- Kirishima- Fuso- Yamashiro- Ise- Hyuga- Nagato- Mutso- Musashi- Yamato. These battleships were the pride of the Imperial Fleet. Better armed and armored than their counterparts, they fell to the new tactical use of airpower.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Japan went to war on a stupid idea 5 novembre 2013
Par Terry Oglethorpe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Could not put the book down. Full of information on the Japanese Navy before and during WWII. All of the Japanese battleships except the last two super battleships were of WWI design and construction. The taxes needed to build the two super battleships about destroyed Japan's economy. How the military leaders of Japan thought that one big sea battle would end the war was insane when many of their leaders knew that we could out produce them in military arms.
