Abstract:

The National Maritime Museum in Greenwich houses the largest collection of scale ship models in the world, many of which are contemporary artifacts made by the craftsmen of the navy or the shipbuilders themselves, ranging from the mid-seventeenth century to the present day. Treated as historical evidence, they offer far more detail than even the best plans or the finest marine paintings. This book features a selection of over one hundred ship models, all in full color, of the various classes of warship that fought in the First World War, from dreadnoughts to coastal motor boats, including many close-up views. These color photos are captioned in depth, and many are also annotated to note interesting or unusual features. Although pictorial in emphasis, the book weaves the pictures into an authoritative text, producing an unusual and attractive form of technical history.
