Description: This new book takes a fresh look at the slow demise of the battleship. It examines the decisions made by the major world powers after 1945, and their aspirations to retain battleships in their navies, despite financial stringency. It places the history and role of battleships after 1945 in their geo-political context, centered around the Cold War and the need for the West to face down an aggressive Soviet Union. It also examines the impact on battleships of operational analysis of the Second World War and new technological developments, notably the atom bomb and the guided missile. 
Chris Baker uses the wealth of information from ships’ books, ships’ logs and gun logs to document the ships’ activities after World War II. In this book, he focuses on ships of the Royal Navy - covering United States battleship operations in Korea, Vietnam, and the Gulf War.
Extensively illustrated with photographs of the range of activities of battleships after 1945.
