MODERN CRUISER The Evolution of the Ship that Fought the Second World War


The Modern Cruiser is an impressively comprehensive book written by an author who clearly has considerable knowledge of the subject. Indeed, it is the book’s broad scope that is its most significant strength, enabling the reader to place particular cruiser designs into a wider context, not only in terms of foreign designs but also with respect to other relevant developments. Stern is good on the political machinations that surrounded the various treaty negotiations, with a particular emphasis on the U.S. perspective…. This book is an important and informative book that should be required reading for all those with an interest in 20th century cruiser design. –Warship
