Resumen del libro

The technical details of British warships were recorded in a set of plans produced by the builders on completion of every ship. Known as the "as fitted" general arrangements, these drawings documented the exact appearance and fitting of the ship as it entered service.
Today these plans form part of the incomparable collection of the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich, which is using the latest scanning technology to make digital copies of the highest quality. This book is one of a series based entirely on these draughts which depict famous warships in an unprecedented degree of detail--complete sets in full color, with many close-ups and enlargements that make every aspect clear and comprehensible. Extensive captions point the reader to important features to be found in the plans, and an introduction covers the background to the design.

HMS Birmingham was selected for the series because this famous interwar 'Town-class cruiser is especially well documented. Unusually, three separate sets of plans survive--as completed in 1937, as refitted in 1943, and as modernized in 1952--which allows this novel form of anatomy to cover the whole of the ship's long career.
