IAN JOHNSTON has had a lifelong interest in shipbuilding, and has written histories of both John Brown's and Beardmore's. His most recent book, Clydebank Battlecruisers, was published in 2011. IAN BUXTON, a retired naval architect, is an acknowledged expert on shipbuilding, and is perhaps best known for his book Big Gun Monitors.
"Technical descriptions in the book are fascinating as is the discussion and explanation of the commercial development of the supporting industries. Superbly written text is supported by numerous black and white photographs, plans - and pieces of equipment. Truly of international importance and the authors deserve to receive high accolades from their academic peers and the wider readership as well. One of the best naval titles I have seen and I doubt that a better book on the subject could be produced. The book will become a classic and is very highly recommended." Marine News There are a myriad of military history books churned out each year, yet very few are of true national or international importance within their field. This book is one of those exceptional publications. Both authors should receive high praise from amongst their peers, the historical & academic communities and general public alike. The information is priceless. The book is crammed full of fascinating (many unseen & unique) B/W photographs on almost every page. If you have any interest in this period of Naval history, Battleships, the Royal Navy or Naval shipbuilding, then you will do well to get hold of this book at your earliest convenience. DREADNOUGHT Ian's book, The Battleship Builders, co-written by Ian Buxton, looks at the history of battleship building in Great Britain as far back as 1906. Glaswegian
