John Roberts is widely recognized for his contributions to warship literature. He was editor of Warship for six years and is the co-author of the standard works on British battleships and cruisers of the Second World War period. His superb warship plans led one authority to describe him as 'the best draughtsman in the UK'. His two previous volumes for Conway, on the Dreadnought and Intrepid, were widely acclaimed.
