WARSPITE. A Legendary Battleship Brought to Life. HMS Warspite fought off the entire German fleet at Jutland, survived a mutiny between the wars, and covered herself in glory during World War II.

Click to EnlargeWARSPITE. A Legendary Battleship Brought to Life. No warship name in British naval history has more battle honors than Warspite. This book examines the careers of all eight vessels to bear the name since 1596, but concentrates on the seventh vessel--the dreadnought battleship conceived as the ultimate answer to German naval power during the pre-World War I arms race. HMS Warspite fought off the entire German fleet at Jutland, survived a mutiny between the wars, and covered herself in glory during World War II. Flagship of Sir John Cunningham when he mastered the Italian Navy in the Mediterranean, Warspite’s many wartime adventures included narrowly avoiding destruction by the Japanese carrier force that devastated Pearl Harbor and providing crucial fire support for Allied landings in Sicily, Italy, and Normandy. The voices of the men who fought aboard Warspite bring to life this stirring tale that will appeal to everyone with an interest in naval history and the ships that symbolized the great seafaring nation.
