As such they were in the frontline of the naval war from the outset – and from its first days the fighting provided unexpected challenges and some very unpleasant surprises not least the efficacy of air power.Cruisers learned to deal with these new realities in the Norway campaign and later in the Mediterranean partly through the introduction of new technology – notably radar – but also by codifying the hard-won experience of those involved. This highly original book analyses the first years of the war when the sharpest lessons were learned initially describing every action and its results and then summarising in individual chapters the conclusions that could be drawn for the many aspects of a cruiser's duties. These include the main roles like surface gunnery shore bombardment anti-aircraft tactics and fighter direction but also encompass technology like radar asdic and shipborne aircraft and even tackle more human issues such as shipboar...

The Author's naval war experiences make the most exciting reading. After being mined on the battleship Nelson in 1939, he served on the Prince of Wales, during the Bismarck action, witnessing the sinking of the Hood and Churchill and Roosevelt's historic meeting. He survived the disastrous sinking by Japanese dive-bombing in December 1941 but within two days of reaching Singapore, the Island fell. Evacuated in a coastal steamer, only to be sunk the next morning, he was stranded on a deserted island for a week before setting out for Ceylon in a native boat. His epic journey covered 1660 miles and took 37 days. Thereafter his adventures continued, with the North African landings, Russian convoys and, returning to the Far East, he was in the carrier Formidable when she was hit twice by Japanese Kamikazes before VI Day August 1945.

German Light Cruisers of World War II: Emden, Konigsberg, Karlsruhe, Koln, Leipzig, Nurnberg (Warships of the Kriegsmarine)
German Light Cruisers of World War II: Emden,
The warships of the World War II era German Navy are among the most popular subjects in naval history with many books devoted to the subject. However, for a concise but authoritative summary of the design history and careers of the major surface ships, it is difficult to beat the six volumes in the Warships of the Kriegsmarine series. Now in paperback for the first time, this sixth volume in the series is devoted to the six ships from Emden to Nuremberg that were built between the wars. Primarily intended for commerce-raiding, the war gave them few opportunities for such employment, although they did provide useful support for key naval operations in the Baltic and North Sea.
