Editorial Reviews

Review

In many ways, the battleship represented the greatest-ever concentration of naval power in a single vessel. Between World War I and World War II, the big, fast, thickly-armored and heavily-armed warships dominated the world's oceans.
And then, very quickly, the battleship became practically obsolete. Why is a complex question -- one that University of Kentucky professor Robert Farley addresses in his new tome The Battleship Book.
- War is Boring

In the event of a survey course called Battleship 101, Robert Farley's work would serve as a suitable textbook.  
The Battleship Book is a wide-ranging primer on the subject of battleships, battle cruisers, near-battleships, and quasi-battleships....
The battleships and their kin were versatile in their time, culminating in the shore-bombardment role for U.S. ships in the final decades of the dreadnought era.  The era is now over. Farley's book makes it worth studying through his rearview mirror.-
Naval History, Paul Stillwell.
