310 pp. 11x8.5" Full Color 600 figures. Hardcover. Heavy glossy paper.

A photographic tour of the entire ship, including areas not open to the public and difficult to access. The book is organized by deck. Each deck has a plan with the photographs keyed to the plan so the reader can see where they were taken. Plans for full decks span two spreads.

The focus of the photographs is structural features of the ship, most of which have not appeared in print before. Examples include:

- The joint between class A and class B belt armor taken from a void space
- The interior of the twin keel
- Peak tank
- Breasthook
- Chain Locker
- Shafts and thrust bearings
- Turret foundation
- All the levels of the turrets, including the turret bearings
- Aviation fuel tanks
- Uptakes

Samples (Sadly, at extremely low resolution for uploading to this forum):

Mostly empty sun room for the Admiral, probably has a typical bridge chair at one point.

Battleship New Jersey sold out their entire stock in one day. More books are on the way.

Other Battleships should have it soon as well.

The book is available to battleships at cost so that all proceeds can go to the ship.
