With the greatest displacement, biggest guns and heaviest armour, "Yamato" and her sister "Musashi" were the ultimate battleships. Everything about them was gigantic - each main armament turret, for example, had a total revolving weight of over 2500 tones - and they proved formidable opponents to the US Pacific Fleet. The author has assembled a portfolio of drawings, and the photographic section includes some very rare on-board views. This contribution to the "Conway's Anatomy of the Ship" series features over twice as many detailed drawings as a standard volume.

Janusz Skulski has a passion for accuracy which is brought out in this volume. Before starting work on the book he built a large model of Yamato to help him interpret the original material, including a wider range of Japanese sources, to help him produce one of the most detailed and popular volumes in the 'Anatomy' series. He is the author of The Battleship Fuso and the Heavy Cruiser Takao in the Anatomy series.
