Anatomy of the Ship Iowa/Stefan Draminski

Post by pasoleati » Sat Jan 25, 2020 4:25 pm

This new book received pretty bad reviews on Steelnavy board. Seems that the book is not really an "anatomy" at all, having very liite on internal details and more a colour exterior renderings book. Since apparently Draminski is a member here, I would really like to know why he has produced such a mediocrity by not following the standard set be AotS Dreadnought? Lack of sources won't do since, again as per Steelnavy board, original detail drawings exist.

What about Draminski´s Bismarck AOTS? It is the only ship that received two books from the series.

Wasn't the newer AotS Bismarck discussed here already? I would really like to hear Draminski's own input as to how the Iowa book is such a failure. To me the very basic idea of the AotS-series is the concentrate on the innards of the ship, not on the exterior as apparently is Draminski's prime interest.
