The Battleship USS North Carolina was the first new U.S. Battleship design in over two decades. She and her sister ship the Washington represented a huge jump in speed, protection and firepower over previous designs. When built, she was one of the most powerful ships in the world. She went on to earn more battle stars than any other U.S. battleship in WWII. The North Carolina is now berthed in Wilmington, N.C. and is a war memorial dedicated to the brave men and women who fought in WWII. This enlarged second edition of USS North Carolina Technical Reference 1 is a must for anyone interested in U.S. battleship operations in WWII. There are over 75 highly detailed photos (23 full page) that give the reader an in-depth view of the ship and her equipment. Included is new research regarding the ships camouflage with complete drawings covering both camouflage and equipment changes. Extensive coverage of the ships AA weapons systems as well as her radar changes are also included. As a bonus the book contains a pull out of a full set of blueprints in 1/350 scale drawn by Tom Walkowiak of The Floating Drydock.
