Description

In war and peace through the first half if the 20th century, U.S. Navy battleships projected American power through the globe. The massive floating fortresses played key roles in the Spanish-American War and World War II. In the second half, Iowa-class battleships took part of operations in Korea, Vietnam, and Operation Desert Storm.

If you are looking for a reference that will show the history of that mobile firepower, get your hands on Images of War: Battleships of the United States Navy. The 192-page softcover volume by noted military author Michael Green, gives a brief account of all the classes of battleship commissioned (or planned in the case of the Montana-class) for the Navy. As the title states, the focus here is images; the pages teem with photos ranging from monitors of the late 9th century and the Great White Fleet through the dreadnoughts and super-dreadnought built before WWII. The final chapter covers the fast battleships the culminated in USS Iowa and it's three classmates. Detailed captions accompany the well-reproduced photos.

Whether you are looking for modeling inspiration or you want to understand the history of U.S. battleships, you’ll enjoy this book.
