Publisher Comments:

Armed and dangerous, warships are designed for battle! Now anyone can climb aboard some of the world's most famous ships and experience all of the action — inside and out — in this fascinating new book. Discover some of the most famous warships of all time, including the supercarrier USS Nimitz and the Yamato, a legendary WWII battleship of the Imperial Japanese Navy. This unique reference book offers a glimpse into life aboard an active military warship, and showcases technological advances over the years. Explore battleships, aircraft carriers, and submarines without getting seasick. Get a bird's-eye view of the ships decks, big guns, and aircraft taking off for battle. Later, go below deck and see the heavy machinery, elevators and hangars, ammunition, and sleeping quarters. Innovative cross-sections illustrate each ship's unique design and construction, while captions and fact boxes provide historical context and further insight. Filled to the hull with more than 300 archival photographs, detailed artwork, maps, and more!
