This book is the second in a series of books covering some of the famous ships of war. This one cover the USS Missouri from her building, right up to her preservation as a museum ship moored next to the USS Arizona. 
The book includes a number of photo of the Missouri during her construction and fitting out. The world war two years are well documented with some really great photos that show her from many angles. The photos are backed up by well written captions, and there is plenty of text and data detailing the ship and it's equipment.

Color renderings show her in her Korean War days as well as her latest configurations.

There are some really nice drawings showing the Missouri at various stages of her career.

This 8-1/4" x 11" soft book is a great resource for anyone who is interested in the USS Missouri. At only $9.95 US it is a great value to the modeler and warship enthusiast alike.
