|Yet another In Action book by Squadron Signal Publications. This one, Warships Number 26 and it covers Japanese Heavy Cruisers of World War Two. The book is intended to give the modeler a source of reference to detail some of the many Japanese cruiser models on the market. The book gives an overview of the Japanese Navy and their cruisers and then covers each class.|
|This book provides a variety of photo's showing Japanese
CA's at various times in their careers. The photos are pretty good and
help illustrate the differences in the classes. The line drawings are helpful,
especially those with notes showing the various design features and the
side by side profiles of the various classes. My favorite feature is the
centerfold with colored profile renderings of various ships.
This book is available from Pacific Front Hobbies for $14.00 US. A fair price for a handy overall guide on IJN CA's. Be sure to check out their extensive line of Naval Book subjects from a variety of publishers covering all kinds of Naval subjects.
