Classic Warships Publishing

Introduction by the Webmaster
Living in a country where it is more or less impossible to buy any naval books I'm bound to buy it all in other countries and I often have no idea what I buy. I know the title of the book but that's all. I only can hope it is a good book. Sadly I have bought several books over the years which I would never have purchased if I have had a chance to sneak peak in it but it is not possible when I buy it from places hundreds or thousands of kilometers away. A few times the books have been better than I had hoped for though.

The "Warship Pictorial" series is by far the most positive surprise I have had so far. I came across one of the books by a mere coincidence and I was totally astonished to see the high quality of the content. Even more surprising was the very low price. High quality and low price at the same time is rarely seen nowaddays.

For just $13 - $16 you are able to purchase an A4 size softback book of superb, value-for-money profiles. The books are full of photos, history, excellent fold-out plans, high quality B+W and colour photos. The books are nicely illustrated and well-researched. Many photos in the books have never been published before.

These books are a MUST for the naval enthusiast and ship modellers (in example the books explain about the colours and paint schemes of the ships).

You might think that this is just a commercial and that I write this because I have been asked to do it and that I earn money from it. This is not the case. Classic Warships Publishing and the author don't know I do this and I earn nothing from doing it.
I merely do it because without the sincere enthusiasm from the author it would not be possible to make these books and because I like to tell the visitors of this website about these excellent books.

If you purchase these books you not only get a lot of wonderful material but you also support new books in this series. Remember to check this page or the website of Classic Warships for news from time to time.

Below the list of books you can see where you can order these books.
