I'm glad you're finding it useful. As I stated initially, it really is a tremendous read (my copy will be returning to me shortly................. my father had to give it a go!).I just got it, on your recommendation, and am to the point where Invincible has just blown up.
This is an EXCELLENT book. Not only for getting all the 1st hand accounts, but also because of the little factual nuggets buried in them, which are extremely difficult, if not impossible, to find in other sources. Such as Indomitable still having 4" guns on the midships turrets at Jutland, because one of the witnesses to Invincible's demise was hiding behind one. You can search the standard and also the rare and obscure reference books in vain for that bit of data.
As for the Conway books, given that there's really not much else out there that attempts to be so universal, they're a godsend. Having said that, I always like to verify the data using other sources (for modelling purposes), as inaccuracies do exist............ some length/beam figures I've found a little dodgy, etc.
