Cruiser Belfast by Ross Watton
Book DescriptionHMS Belfast was the largest British cruiser of the Second World War and saw distinguished service throughout the conflict, including playing a major part in the destruction of the German battlecruiser Scharnhorst. Today she is preserved as an historic monument on the River Thames in London. The 'Anatomy of the Ship' series aims to provide the finest documentation of individual ships and ship types ever published. What makes the series unique is a complete set of superbly executed line drawings, both the conventional type of plan as well as explanatory views, with fully descriptive keys. These are supported by technical details and a record of the ship's service history.

Author Biography - Ross Watton
In 1981, after service with the Royal Navy, Ross attended art college and began work on a large cutaway illustration of HMS Belfast, which is still on display on the ship. He also started writing his first book for Conway, about the preserved cruiser, in the Anatomy of the Ship series. During the next four years, he wrote three more titles for the series and illustrated many of the dust jacket covers for the others. His work as a freelance illustrator, has enabled him to tackle a wide variety of subjects and the results have featured in many books and on hundreds of postage stamps. More recently, he has been responsible for producing the 3D ship cutaway illustrations for the Navy News. He has also launched his own website, to showcase his new maritime paintings.
