USS Missouri at War by Kit Bonner

Book Description

On September 2, 1945, surrender ceremonies officially ending WW II in the Pacific were broadcast from the deck of the USS Missouri. This ceremony also marked the end of one of the most eventful years for any vessel in the history of warfare. "USS Missouri At War" chronicles the career of this mighty warship, the last battleship built by the United States. Veteran naval historian Kit Bonner describes 'Mighty MO's' powerful strikes against Japan, it's support of the Iwo Jima landings, bombardment of Okinawa, and it's decisive role in the destruction of key Japanese industrial targets.Bonner follows her service in the Korean War, her modernization and reactivation for the Gulf War of 1991, then her final decommissioning in 1992, with even battle stars to her credit. For an authoritative and close-up look at the life and work of a world-class battleship, and for its insight into the history of twentieth-century naval warfare, this strikingly illustrated book is one that no naval enthusiast or military history buff will want to be without.
