Anatomy of the Ship Series. Built as a floating siege engine able to withstand the recoil of shell-firing mortars, the Granado was one of twelve bomb vessels supplementing the depleted British fleet at the outbreak of the War of Jenkins' Ear in 1739. This book begins with a brief description of the development of bomb vessels, from the early galiote a bombe built in 1682 to the World War II monitors used for coastal bombardment, and continues with an in-depth description of the Granado, a summary of the ship's career, and more than 250 detailed illustrations.

The Type VII U-boat was the backbone of the fighting strength of Nazi Germany's U-boats at the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939. The first submarine sinking of the war was by a Type VII boat, and some of the most dramatic events of the first year of the war involved a Type VII - the sinking of HMS Courageous by U29 in the Atlantic in September 1939 and the sinking of HMS Royal Oak by U47 in Scapa Flow a few weeks later.
