A perfect publication prepared by Neil McCart and published by Maritime Books some years ago. As the name of this book implies, it has been fully dedicated to the last battleship of the British Navy Fleet, HMS Vanguard. This title will tell the readers about the brilliant service history of the subject vessel, starting from the construction phase. Many great photographs are supplementing the technical and historical parts of the book. HMS Vanguard is the very last British battleship; unfortunately, subject ship was towed away and got scrapped about forty years ago and is now lost forever. It was the decision made by the Royal Navy to dispense the vessel. The book we are now presenting to your attention features a truly superb combination of narrative part and images effectively describing the entire eighteen year career of the ship starting from the day of her launching and to the final destination point at the breaking yard for scrapping. The book not only presents an overview of these years of brilliant service but also provides a very detailed description of the vessel at sea, as the author of the book gathered so many excellent illustrations and other supporting materials to make the book practical and easy to use.
