When the USS North Carolina steamed into Pearl Harbor in July 1942, men cleaning up the wreckage from the surprise Japanese attack seven months earlier everyone in the harbor broke into cheers. At the time of her commissioning, the North Carolina was the biggest, fastest, best-armed battleship in the U.S. fleet. BOYS OF THE BATTLESHIP NORTH CAROLINA is less a saga of a ship than the story of her "boys." Author Ramsey interviewed many of the surviving shipmates in the late 1990s and early 21st century. The story of the battleship is told here through their stories and memories.
