Now available in paperback, this book traces the complete story of the Missouri from her keel-laying in 1941, her participation in the Japanese surrender in 1945, and her contribution to the Persian Gulf War. Through extensive interviews and research with records from the Naval Heritage and History Command, National Archives, Harry S. Truman Library, and other repositories, author Paul Stillwell has produced an engrossing portrait of the ship and her crew. With a detailed chronology of the ship's legendary career, dozens of human interest stories, and hundreds of photographs and drawings,Battleship Missouri serves as a fine tribute to one of the great ships of the modern era.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Iowa-class battleship aficionados will need to add Stillwell's Battleship Missouri to their library. The rest of us will be glad to know it's there." --Nautical Research Journal
"Paul Stillwell has compiled what must now stand as the USS Missouri's definitive history."--American Neptune
"Since it is the last battleship to be built for the U.S. Navy, the last one to be in commission, and the site of the Japanese surrender that marked the ending of World War Two, the USS Missouri (BB-63) has earned a place in the U.S. naval history. This impressive book describes the history of this historic ship in great detail and author Stillwell has certainly turned up a mass of information about the events on board and around the BB-63 in its long career . . . the sheer amount of information in this book about the BB-63 makes it an item battleship enthusiasts will find well worth the price." --Warship International
