This volume contains a collection of over 700 drawings, illustrating and describing the largest and most powerful of Japan's heavy cruisers, Takao. These were aggressive ships, being fast, heavily armed with both guns and torpedoes, and well-protected, and saw much action in the Pacific War of 1941-45. The author's drawings cover every aspect of their intricate design, from hull structure to armament, boats, aircraft and catapults.
