011800: No Jacket As Issued. LCCN# 90-070688. Boards and pages are clean, unmarked, bright, tightly bound and sharp cornered. Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. "Includes a history of the battleship class of ship, a chapter on the American Battleship Association, first-person 'sea-stories' by battleship crew members, biographical sketches of crew members, photos of members, maps, charts, other battleship veteran groups, and much more! It is interesting to note that several of our states lent their name to more than one battleship. There were two named: USS MAINE, TEXAS, INDIANA, MASSACHUSETTS, IOWA, ALABAMA, WISCONSIN, MISSOURI, NEW JERSEY, IDAHO, and MISSISSIPPI. Ironically there never was a battleship commissioned in the U.S. Navy named for the state of Montana and there was one battleship that was named for something other than a state of the union - USS KEARSARGE, named for a mountain in Merrimack County, New Hampshire. I would also like to thank the over 700 battleship veterans who submitted personal sea stories, photos and many accounts of their battleship in action."
