German Battleship Helgoland: As detailed in the original builders' plan

12 February 2019

By Professor Aidan Dodson. Published by Seaforth.

The name-ship of the second class of dreadnoughts designed by the Germans, Helgoland was a big advance over the earlier Westfalen class, having 12in guns that matched those of her British opponents.

She served in the High Seas Fleet throughout the war, fought at Jutland, and was ceded to Britain as part of the peace terms - which is probably why the plans are at Greenwich - and was broken up in 1924.

This book is the latest in a series based entirely on original official plans and reproduces the complete set in full colour, with many close-ups, enlargements and commentaries.
