U.S. Battleships PDF
U.S. Battleships is one the most comprehensive references available on the entire development of U.S. battleships, starting in 1886, with Maine and Texas, continuing to South Carolina, the U. S. Navy’s first dreadnought, through to the behemoth Montana-class of World War II, Friedman authoritatively analyzes the design and performance histories of this popular type. The long careers of the Iowa-class, including their recommissioning in the late Cold War, are covered. Like the other books in Friedman’s design-history series, U.S. Battleships is based largely on formerly classified internal U.S. Navy records.
Friedman, a leading authority on U.S. warships, explains the political and technical rationales for building battleships and recounts the evolution of each design. Alan Raven and A.D. Baker III have created detailed scale outboard and plan views of each ship class and of major modifications to many classes. Numerous photographs complement the text.

Ultimate to US Navy Battleships from USS Maine 1888 to the Montana class 1941
Reviewed in Germany on January 10, 2021
I review here the hardcover edition. The book was printed in 1985, but has good quality paper, good photos and a lot of line drawings of good quality. In the book are many cross section showing armour. This is a great book if you are interested in the development and design of US Navy Battleships. The book contains 17 chapters, and describes all battleships and classes built and rebuilt and projected between 1888 and 1945 and after. The Iowa class is not described in the same detail as for example the Reconstruction of the Battleships in the 1930s. Monitors are also covered. The book is about the development of battleships, their political and techical rationales. And this story is well done. Although the hardcover edition has very good photos (by1980’s standards) the photos are not really important to understand the text. The drawings are more important. If you want to have a picture book about USN battleship you probably want to look elsewhere, but this book is unique in that it describes with great authority the design and development proces of these important ships in the US navy during a continious period for over 60 years
A Classic book about the design of the USN’s Battleships.

This is a soft cover Naval Institute Press reprint of Friedman’s 1985 design study of United States battleships. The book’s contents are typical of Norman Friedman’s publications: meticulously detailed explanations of the design process for each class of battleships, including those that were never built. No one is better than Friedman at analysing the influences that led to the choice of specific armament, protection and propulsion systems. My sole criticism is that the photographs are not as clear as those in other Friedman books that I own. Maybe that is because it is a scanned reprint or perhaps recent reproductive methods are just better, even for old photographs, than those used in 1985.
This not an operational history but is perfect for those interested in the history of naval design and development.
