USS Iowa BB-61 - Legends of Warfare
USS Iowa (BB-61) was the lead ship in the US Navy's last, and most battle-worthy, battleship class. This volume explores Iowa's construction, wartime activities through two wars, and peacetime use, including a tragic explosiion, are through carefully researched photos, many of which have never before been published, which are reproduced in remarkable clarity. This clarity, and the large size of many of the photos, coupled with descriptive and informative captions, puts the reader on the deck of this historic warship throughout her history. Part of the Legends of Warfare series.
