John Lambert was a renowned naval draftsman, whose plans were highly valued for their accuracy and detail by model makers and enthusiasts. By the time of his death in 2016, he had produced over 850 sheets of drawings, many of which have never been published. Following the first volume on destroyer armament, this one covers all such weapons carried by the various types of British escorts and minesweepers of this era, including the �passive� elements like sweeping gear, decoys, and electronics. The drawings are backed by introductory essays by Norman Friedman, an acknowledged authority on naval ordnance, while a selection of photographs adds to the value of the book as a visual reference. Over time, the series will be expanded to make this unique technical archive available in published form, a move certain to be welcomed by warship modelers, enthusiasts, and the many fans of John Lambert�s work.
