Format: Hardcover
James P. Delgado's list of credits is impressive by any standards. With such a high reputation in the field of marine archaeology, you just know the information contained within this book is something on which you can rely - but there is much more to this book than just a collection of facts. "Lost Warships" is accurately described by the Publisher as an "Archaeological Tour of War at Sea" but Mr Delgado has turned that tour into the most fascinating journey through time on that theme. Better still, this is also a very readable book with something for everyone.

Measuring 11¼ n x 9¼ n, Lost Warships is hardback containing 190 pages of solid information. There are illustrations on almost every page in the form of historic photographs, paintings, line drawings and even brass rubbings. With each of these being carefully selected, they combine to depict the wide variety of subject matter necessary to support the various elements of the overall "story" which this book tells so well.

Neatly laid out, this book is an anthology of War at Sea as, chapter by chapter, we move steadily forward from ancient times to the nuclear age.

Part of the caption to the last photograph in the book reads; "Today, the silent guns resting beneath the waves, are a reminder that the sea is our greatest museum of human sacrifice, bravery and folly."

Says it all really.

After reading a local Florida newspaper article describing ceremonies scheduled to honor survivors of Pearl Harbor World War II conflict in Hawaii, I decided to request this title and one other to send to a library in McKean County, Pennsylvania. The journalism stated that the USS Arizona warship yet remains submerged in an Hawaiian harbor, mid-Pacific Ocean.

I have not read the book(s) and so have not rated them using scale provided above other than one star to denote appropriate title.

7-4-2011 OMG -- the stars are value-loaded, make that three for title, theme AND bookmaker quality.
