Someone asked about this book on the other site and got no responses:

https://www.amazon.com/Battleships-Iowa ... W4H1GG5AWR

After going to the link I had the same questions. Does anyone know anything about this book? There are no sample pages on any book site I can find. I can find no reviews on any book site either.

It's a large book but it's 'spensive so I'd like to have some idea about it before shelling out the cash.

Since it says "Translated by Bruce Taylor", I assume the content is the same as the 2015 French version, which was published in two separate volumes.

I tried briefly to find some reviews for the French editions, which are titled the same (but in French): "Les cuirass├ęs de la classe Iowa". Alas, nothing there either. Maybe some of our French members can help.
