Editorial Reviews

Review

“This book does not disappoint in detailed descriptions and contemporary black and white photos of the various classes of these scouts for the fleet. There are also several beautifully rendered color plates of artist's depictions at various stages of the covered battles. The illustrators are the well known Howard Gerrard and Paul Wright. From this modeler's perspective, I recommend this book.” ―Ned Ricks, IPMS/USA (December 2009)

“These cruisers were what is known as 'Treaty Ships' developed at a time when it was felt that a limit on the size and number of ships would prevent an all out spiraling of weapons costs amongst those nations who were involved. It is with these ships that the US and Japan went to war. In this edition, author Mark Stille looks at the design and development of these ships on both sides... It is a book that I thoroughly enjoyed reading and is one that I know you will find a delight as well.” ―
Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness, www.modelingmadness.com (October 2009)

“A solid pick for such [military history] collections... Mark Stille's USN Cruiser vs IJN Cruiser: Guadalcanal 1942, telling of the US Navy's first major amphibious offensive.” ―
The Bookwatch (January 2010)

“...fully illustrated with original artwork and rare photographs.” ―
Wonderpedia
