BOOK REVIEW | The Japanese Battleship Ise

By Carlo Cestra

Yet another in the ever growing list of brief but beautifully detailed “3D” warship profile books from the prolific Polish publisher Kagero. This is, as the Kagero histories always are, well-researched and very informative.

In 86 lavishly illustrated pages, every imaginable detail of this magnificent battleship/seaplane carrier is revealed. The book also includes a potted history of the vessel. Despite its many impressive features, Ise was not notably successful as a warship and was sunk in the last days of the war.

Available from Kagero Publishing, Poland.
