Warships No. 4
This is the second "In Action" book that deals with US Battleships of WW2. This book covers the 'fast' Battleship classes - the North Carolina, the South Dakota and the most infamous US Class of Battleships - the Iowa Class - Iowa, New Jersey, Wisconsin and Missouri.
The narrative covers the development and influences of each class, where/when they saw action. The book was published in 1984, so it captures the updates made to the Iowa Class ships under the Regan years, but not service in the first Gulf War.
There are line drawings showing different rader, missle launchers, side views showing early and later modifications. Plenty of B&W photos showing the different gun mounts, interior of the 16" turret.
This book, and its companion, are perfect for the modeler, or someone just getting started in studying these famous ships of WW2.
