The Battlecruiser HMS Hood. Book by Stefan Drami?ski. Kagero Top Drawings No.24. Hood, launched in 1918 was the last battlecruiser built in Great Britain. She was named in honor of Admiral Samuel Hood and was to be the first of the Admiral- class battlecruisers, but further three vessels were never completed. During the construction the design had to be extensively modified to embody the experience of the Battle of Jutland, which markedly exposed insufficient armor of British battlecruisers. She fascinated not only with the size, but also with her firepower, thus she quickly won the nickname 'Mighty Hood'. In the 1920s and 30s she made many training cruises in the seas of the whole world, being an advertisement of Royal Navy, proving its might. Illustrated with drawings and colour scheme.
