Synopsis

The development of the US Navy’s dreadnought battleships was a pivotal part of America’s evolution into a true world power. By the beginning of World War I, the United States possessed the world’s third largest navy, with ten dreadnoughts in service and four more under construction. By the end of World War II, the US Navy was the undoubted global superpower, despite initial crippling losses to its battlefleet at Pearl Harbor. Richly illustrated with archive photographs as well as a full cutaway of the world’s only surviving dreadnought, this comprehensive and detailed title covers the technical characteristics and combat record of the US dreadnoughts throughout their long careers.
