BB-67 MONTANA, U.S. Navy Battleship: Why She Matters Today Apr 29, 2008
I was provided a pdf of this document for review. The un-built Montana class of American super battleships is of interest for military (and naval) history fans, given its place in World War II-era naval planning and production. This document includes introductory material on the inception of the American super battleship design, some information on the evolution of that design, and of course details of the cancellation of the class. This document's strength is its graphical information, including reproductions of design documents, photos of scale models used during construction planning, artistic interpretations of the ship if built, and images of a recent scale model of the ship (with several views and closeups). The author adds some discussion of current major naval projects in the context of the resource- and tactics-driven cancellation of this pre-war design. This document is a worthy addition to the library of an individual interested in World War II naval history and battleships, particularly conjectural designs. Persons interested in greater depth on American battleship design are directed to Polmar's book on that subject, which is cited in this volume.
BB-67 Montana, Proposed U.S. WWII Battleship Apr 11, 2008
BB-67 MONTANA, U.S. Navy Battleship: Why She Matters Today This is an absurdly overpriced booklet of 24 pages. It consists of 5 pages of extremely elemental text, 4 pages of hard to read design schemes, 11 pages of photographs of a model of the ship, 3 pages of an artists's conception of the ship undeway, and 1 page showing the aborted Montana BB-51 of 1921 in the early stage of construction. I would certainly not recommend this publication for anyone with a serious interest in learning the full story of the design history of the last class of BB's planned for the U.S. Navy.
