NEW VANGUARD 169: US FAST BATTLESHIPS 1936-47 - THE NORTH CAROLINA AND SOUTH DAKOTA CLASSES

Details

This volume details the design construction and operation of the first six of the ten US fast battleships two of the North Carolina class and four of the South Dakota class. These six battleships were all authorized in 1936 and were the first vessels built in the US since 1923. Consequently these ships benefitted from enormous technological leaps with improvements in ship design power armor armament and the single most important improvement the use of radar guided fire control helping to change the course of the war in the Pacific. Packed with first-hand accounts battle reports and specially created artwork this book tells the story of these war-winning vessels.
