Book Review: Cruisers and Battle Cruisers

Cruisers and Battle Cruisers: An Illustrated History of Their Impact (Weapons and Warfare Series)Cruisers and Battle Cruisers: An Illustrated History of Their Impact

by Eric W. Osborne

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I bought this book to provide background information for a novel I’m writing. Being historic in part, I wanted real-life experiences of Cruisers in action to share with my readers. Such stories were hard to find until I stumbled over Eric Osborne’s book. Great background. Fascinating historic information on the ‘workhorse of the world’s Navies’. Nothing on the updates now going on with some of the oldest cruisers, and he erroneously prophesied that the US Navy would begin retiring the Ticonderoga Class Cruisers, but everything else was spot on and quite readable even for the armchair enthusiast.
