Editorial Reviews

Except for the U.S.S. Constitution probably no ship has meant more to the history of America than the U.S.S. Oregon. This book tells the story of that ship, nicknamed "McKinley's Bulldog" - how it was built, the battles it fought, the men who manned it, and the historical events in which it played a part. Built near the turn of the century when America was for all practical purposes without a navy, the Oregon became the pride of the fleet, one of our prototype modern battleships. During the Spanish-American war the "Bulldog" electrified the world by racing almost fifteen thousand miles in sixty-six days, a record-­smashing time, to play a decisive role in the battle at Santiago de Cuba. The United States was just then coming into its own as a world power and the Oregon provided the muscle and the confidence that it needed. After spending two years in Manila with Admiral Dewey, she was called upon to help reopen the important trade center of Peking which was under siege during the Boxer Rebellion. Shortly thereafter she ran aground and was presumed lost off the coast of China but was salvaged and remodeled, enabling her to serve with the Pacific fleet in World War I.
