While this particular book is not actually geared toward modelers it is a very good reference to have at hand. Historical reference material is just as important to a modeler as is detailed information on your subject. So adding this book to your reference library would be a wise choice. It is written on a level that allows the reader to take in the information.
Jim Adams, Model Shipwrights (April 2008)
The author is a specialist in this period and successfully brings to life the Tudor warship's developmental history and its use on the high seas. [The book] examines in detail the Mary Rose--the only 16th century warship on display anywhere in the world--and her tragic sinking. Meticulously researched archive photographs and detailed full-color artwork, including cutaways and contemporary illustrations.
Capt. Edward Lundquist, Sea Classics
Konstam has produced an excellent example of the genre and it serves as a quick introduction to early Tudor warship design, ordinance, and the engagements fought in the first half of the sixteenth century... can be recommended without reservation on that basis.
Ian Yeates, The Northern Mariner / Le Marin Du Nord
...backed by superb images of period illustrations and the artwork of Tony Bryan, providing one with an outstanding book on a truly unique subject. Get this one, you'll be pleased you did.
