The HNSA comprises one of the strongest naval fleets in the world including battleships and aircraft carriers, submarines and cruisers, frigates and destroyers, Victory and Liberty class vessels, corvettes, cutters, motor torpedo boats etc. As it is implied in the title of the book, it will provide readers with the technical information covering more than a hundred of classic naval warships on public display.
The main content of the publication is starting with the introductory chapter providing some general overview of the HNSA and the alphabetical listing of the vessels addressed in the pages of the volume. The very first naval warships selected for preservation and further exhibition in America were the USS Oregon and USS Constitution.
Each of the vessels covered within this publication is provided with the information on the class, launching date and place, main dimensions and armament, and other relevant data plus some narrative text that will definitely be greatly appreciated by all people with the interest in this field...
