FAIRFAX, Va., April 13, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ –General Dynamics Global Imaging Technologies has introduced the new Cineflex ELITE, a light-weight, compact, Super 35 format digital production camera featuring a design that ensures quick, affordable transport and simple rigging onto a wide variety of mobile platforms.

The story of this extraordinary ship is told very ably by the author and lavishly illustrated with fine colour photographs and excellent drawings and sketches. In addition to describing the methods of construction, the author has included much detail on the work to maintain and preserve Victory. It is difficult to imagine any self-respecting private library not including a copy of this Owners’ Workshop Manual. No other work has captured the full history of this outstanding warship and provided an anatomy of great detail and clarity. If a novice in naval history was restricted to buying just one book, this is the book to buy. Highly commended.
