From the sinking of the Maine, which sparked the Spanish-American War, to the devastating losses in the attack on Pearl Harbor, battleships have played a crucial role in the history of modern naval warfare. Tracing the development of the battleship from the commissioning of the first seagoing class in the 1890s, Battleships brings to life the story of these lethal leviathans with illuminating text and stunning full-color and black-and-white archival photographs. Affecting personal reminiscences, from both officers and enlisted men, give readers an intimate look at the reality of the men who lived and died on board.
