The goal of this publication is to present comprehensively both the hull construction, propulsion, and weaponry as well as the course of action and fate during the Second World War of Italian warships of the Vittorio Veneto type to the readers. However, since the decisions about their construction were made due to the sometimes complicated political and military situation in the world in the inter-war period, the genesis and gateway leading to the construction and equipment of the Italian warships were also presented. These ships were the most modern and in many ways even the best representatives of their class on the day of the outbreak of the Second World War. Although the Italian war fleet could not pride itself on successes during the fighting in 1940-1943, nonetheless the history of World War II in the region of the Mediterranean sea is undoubtedly worth knowing.


'..makes for a very useful reference for ship modellers in particular, as there are kits available. Another fine book from Kagero.'
