WARSHIP PICTORIAL 43 - ALASKA CLASS CRUISERS

This book is a photographic history of the cruisers of the ALASKA class, of which three were laid down, but only two, USS ALASKA CB-1 & USS GUAM CB-2 were completed. Many have thought of these warships as battlecruisers, but the US Navy classified them as "Large Cruisers." Their completion late in the Second World War, only allowed them to see action for the last few months of the war, and they were soon retired. This book contains 72 pages of photos of the two ships completed, as well as photos of the third incomplete vessel of the class, HAWAII. A brief history on these cruisers is provided, as well as informative captions about details seen in each photograph, and statistical data on the class.  There are 6 color and 71 black & white photos are contained within the book.  Order No. WP #43  $18.00

Warship Pictorial 42 - Round Bridge Fletcher
by Rick Davis

Publisher :  Classic Warships Publishing
Published : November 2014
Price $17.95
ISBN : 978-0-9857149-6-3

In 1941, the US Navy began building a fleet of large destroyers, its first design to rival the Japanese “special type” destroyers that had first entered service more than a decade before. These "2,100-toners" became the most successful of all American destroyers, fast, roomy, capable of absorbing enormous punishment, and a flush deck design. This book covers the 58 units of the total of 175 built in the class, known as the "Round Bridge" design.  Overall, aerial and many detail images, all period photography, highlight these valiant warships that carried the US Navy through the Second World War in the Pacific.  Contained within the 72 pages and covers are 4 color photos and 122 B & W photos, most never before in print.  This book is a "must have" for any interested in the visual history of this warship type and in US Navy destroyers of the World War Two era.  Order No. #WP-42  $17.95

IOWA CLASS BOOK from Squadron

SS26007   IOWA CLASS BATTLESHIPS ON DECK (Paperback)  $18.95

 

The Iowa-class battleships were America's – and the world’s – last active battleships, serving as recently as 1995. Back in the World War II era, six of the class were ordered, and four completed: Iowa, New Jersey, Missouri and Wisconsin. The Missouri rose to fame as the site of the Japanese surrender ending WWII. Each armed with nine 16-inch rifles able to hurl 2,700-lb shells more than 23 miles, the Iowa’s were capable of combating formidable sea-going foes. In actuality, however, their huge main guns were used instead, to shell enemy land positions during WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and the Gulf War. In later years their original arrays of 16-inch and five-inch guns were augmented with missiles, including the Harpoon as well as the Tomahawk cruise missiles. Explore the decks and depths of these mighty warships, once home to thousands of sailors, 88 pages packed with over 270 color photos, carefully chosen to show the subtle differences between these four near-identical ships.

The USS Lexington - affectionately referred to as 'Lady Lex' - was the United States Navy's second aircraft carrier. Laid down as the lead ship of the Lexington-class battlecruisers, which were to have been the world’s most powerful warships, the Washington Naval Treaty forbade her completion as such, but permitted her to be finished as an aircraft carrier. Commissioned 14 December 1927, Lexington, with her fabric-covered biplanes deployed to the Pacific. Through the following years both the ship and her aircraft underwent numerous upgrades. These changes, along with her construction, the daily routine of the crew are fully chronicled. The book also describes the transition of both men and machine as the nation plunged into the war, which ended for the Lexington on 8 May 1942, when she sank in the Coral Sea. No other single volume encompasses all the historic images that pack this latest volume. Illustrated with 235 photos, 14 color renderings and detailed line drawings; 104 pages. ISBN 978-0-89747-715-4   $24.95
