Format: Paperback
This A4 paperback provides a good visual introduction to Tirpitz and some data on Bismarck. The first part includes general arrangement drawings of armour, followed by well-chosen photgraphs of the ship which show most of the details a modeller or historian would need. Some of the photographs are wrongly captioned, however, and they are not in chronological order. Some are also out of focus, but this is probably due to poor originals being used.
The drawings of the ship are of exceptionally high quality and include all deck plans, all critical sections and elevations and a set of 'lines'. Although of small scale - about 1:1000 - they are sharp enough to stand enlargement.
There are also a number of photographs of a museum model of Tirpitz, but these are not of very high quality and the viewpoints are repetitive and unimaginatively chosen.
Overall, very good value and essential for any Tirpitz/Bismarck enthusiast.
