Book Description
Japan entered World War II with the third-largest navy in the world, after those of Great Britain and the United States. The 18 heavy cruisers of the Imperial Japanese Navy were a combined force of large and powerful ships designed for attack rather than defense. Long, low to the water, heavy, and fast, they looked like no other nation's cruisers, with their flush decks and curved hulls, topped off with large, pagoda-like tower bridges. Designers of the heavy cruisers gave them a highly original arrangement of curved funnels, turrets, and masts. They were at once beautiful and deadly as they sliced through the waves on their way to Pacific battles. Packed with more than 90 black-and-white photos, six color profiles, and line drawings.
