USS New Jersey (BB-62): From World War II, Korea, and Vietnam to Museum Ship (Legends of Warfare)

Preserved today as a museum in its namesake state, the battleship USS New Jersey (BB-62) saw combat during WWII and the Korean War and was the only battleship of any nation to see service during the Vietnam War.
Following service in Vietnam, New Jersey was again retired to the reserve fleet; there it languished from 1969 to 1982, when the Reagan administration reactivated and modernized the New Jersey and its three Iowa-class sisters - Iowa, Missouri, and Wisconsin - and returned the massive ships to service. New Jersey was again decommissioned and returned to the reserve fleet in 1991.

In a move that remains controversial even now, in 1999 the New Jersey was declared surplus by the Navy. The custody of the ship was then transferred to the Home Port Alliance organization in Camden, New Jersey, which currently maintains the battleship as a memorial and museum.
This book, through more than 225 photos, documents the battleship from construction, through combat during each of its wars, to its preservation today. Part of the Legends of Warfare series.

USS Missouri (BB-63) - America's Last Battleship (Legends of Warfare)

The story of the USS Missouri, one of America's most famous warships of the twentieth century, and the world's last battleship, is told from her inception in 1940, through WWII kamikaze attacks, to her being the location of the Japanese surrender in Tokyo Bay, on September 2, 1945.
Missouri's post-WWII activities are covered, from her transporting of the Truman family from South America, to her unfortunate grounding in the Chesapeake Bay, on to her return to combat, not only off Korea in 1950, but also the Persian Gulf in 1990-91.

The story of this historic ship is presented through carefully researched photos, many of which have never before been published, and are reproduced in remarkable clarity.
The story culminates in Missouri's current status as a museum in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Large, clear photos, coupled with descriptive and informative captions, puts the reader on the deck of this legendary American warship. Part of the Legends of Warfare series.

USS Wisconsin (BB-64): From World War II to the Persian Gulf to Museum Ship (Legends of Warfare)

Carrying the highest hull number ever assigned to a commissioned US battleship, the Wisconsin was the last of the four Iowa-class battleships - along with the Iowa, New Jersey, and Missouri.
The Wisconsin fought through the final year of WWII, saw extensive service during the Korean War, and then was recalled to arms to liberate Kuwait during the Gulf War in 1991. During the latter war, Wisconsin not only loosed its massive 16-inch cannons but launched Tomahawk cruise missiles deep into enemy territory.
Finally released from Navy service, the battleship today is a floating museum moored near downtown Norfolk, Virginia.

This book, through more than 250 photos, documents the battleship from design and construction, through combat during each of its wars, to its preservation today.
