Although bombed at Pearl Harbor, USS Tennessee was back to sea before the year was over. The crew of the resilient warship fought from Alaska’s Aleutian Islands to Tokyo Bay, surviving enemy artillery, bombs, and kamikaze attacks, and even collisions with other American warships. In 1945, Tennessee took part in the famous Battle of Surigao Strait, the last battleship-versus-battleship combat in history. The hundreds of photographs in this volume, many previously unpublished, trace this history of this iconic warship from her launching in Brooklyn in 1919, to her scrapping in Baltimore forty years later. Part of the Legends of Warfare series. AUTHOR: Author of more than 100 books, David Doyle’s maritime books are noted for their thorough coverage of historic vessels and his celebrated ability to locate scarce vintage imagery. SELLING POINTS: History of the design, development, and deployment of USS Tennessee, survivor of the Pearl Harbor attack Chronicles the construction, launch, commissioning, and combat history of the Tennessee’s 40+ year history Profusely illustrated with scarce archival photographs from diverse collections, including previously unpublished images 255 colour and b/w photographs
