New book, 72 pages. This book covers the Japanese Takao class cruisers of WW2. The book features stunning photos, and drawings of the IJN cruisers from their construction to their end. The photos are a mix of war time photos and detail shots that show off important features of the ships. Many of these photos I have never seen before in print. The photos are captioned to highlight the details shown. The drawings are detailed and include plan and profiles of the Takao, Atago, Maya and Chokai. The drawings are detailed and some even include hull lines. There are weapons drawings, and views of the various float planes that were carried. In addition there is a section on the history and record of movement for each ship.
