    One thought on “Austro-Hungarian Cruisers and Destroyers 1914–18”

    1. As similar to the prequel, the Austro-Hungarian Battleships book, esoteric, but super enjoyable. It's best read in conjunction with the Battleships book as a lot of the battles discussed in the books involve all types of Kuk Kreigsmarine ships. I'm just waiting for the Austro-Hungarian U-Boots book to come out.

    2. From a historic standpoint nicely done. But I can't stop of people comparing tools of destruction as if it was the last night's shoot on goal.
