USS NEW JERSEY BB-62/LEGENDS OF NAVAL WARFARE

Preserved today as a museum in its namesake state, the battleship USS New Jersey (BB-62) saw combat during WWII and the Korean War and was the only battleship of any nation to see service during the Vietnam War. Following service in Vietnam, New Jersey was again retired to the reserve fleet ; there it languished from 1969 to 1982, when the Reagan administration reactivated and modernized the New Jersey and its three Iowa-class sisters-Iowa, Missouri and Wisconsin-and returned the massive ships to service. New Jersey was again decommissioned end returned to the reserve fleet in 1991. In a move that remains controversial even now, in 1999 the New Jersey was declared surplus by the Navy. The custody of the ship was then transferred to the Home Port Aliiance organization in Campden, New Jersey, wich currently maintains the battleship as a memorial and museum. This book, through more than 225 photos, documents the battleship from its construction, through combat during each of its wars, to its preservation today.
