Review for Italian Battleships Conte di Cavour and Duilio Classes 1911-1956

Author/Director : Ermino Bagnasco and Augusto de Toro

Format : Book

This is the story of the ships of two classes of Italian battleships, Conte di Cavour and Duilio Classes from their beginnings to their ends. The design decisions which brought them into being, the building processes, their wartime activities and the finale of the breakers yards are all here. The period covered is from 1911 to 1956. The book is packed with information which could only have been gathered and presented through painstaking research by the two authors. The text is clear and lucid and is supported by an incredible number of photographs of all aspects of the ships’ existence. Even the various camouflage designs and colours are illustrated. There cannot be much to be known about these vessels, as individual ships that is not in this book.
It is a pleasure to read and we warmly recommend it to a wide range of readers.
