MOUNTAINEER BATTLEWAGON: USS West Virginia (BB-48), a pictorial history by Myron J. Smith, Jr. Launched in 1921, West Virginia's age should have restricted her abilities more in WWII than her record indicates. "WeeVee" was scarred at Pearl Harbor, but she was repaired and eventually earned 5 Battle Stars. The author has done a fine job not only of recording the war history of the ship, but he has also captured in photos and narrative the excellent spirit and pride of her crew. A 22-inch centerfold provides full color plates of the West Virginia as she looked in 1941 and as she appeared in 1944. Softcover, 48 pages.
