Norman Friedman is a prominent international naval analyst and historian who has published more than thirty books covering a wide range of naval subjects.
Years ago while I was still just a young battleship enthusiast, I bought my first copy of U.S. Battleships: An Illustrated Design History. I frequently reference it when creating exhibits, and filming videos for the museum's YouTube channel. The book is still as relevant today as it was when it was first released, and perfect for anyone interested in learning more about U.S. Navy Battleships! --Ryan Szimanski, executive director of the Historic Naval Ships Association and the curator for Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial
