FREE STATE BATTLEWAGON: USS Maryland (BB-46). - Commissioned in 1921, the Maryland, or "Fighting Mary" as she was sometimes known, instantly became a most valuable asset of the United States Navy.

This outstanding pictorial history of the Maryland records all of her prewar capabilities and does an excellent job of documenting her important role in the South Pacific in World War Two. Softcover, 48 pages, with many fine photos and a 22-inch centerfold full color image of Maryland.
