Known as the as fitted general arrangements, these drawings documented the exact appearance and fitting of the ship as it entered service. Today these plans form part of the incomparable collection of the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich, which is using the latest scanning technology to make digital copies of the highest quality. This book is the first of a series based entirely on these drafts which will depict famous warships in an unprecedented degree of detail--complete sets in full color, with many close-ups and enlargements that make every aspect clear and comprehensible. The celebrated battleship Warspite is an ideal introduction to this new series--an apparently familiar subject, but the result is an anatomy that will fascinate every warship enthusiast and modeler"--Dust jacket."@en ;
