The USS Texas proudly saw combat in WWI and WWII, and since 1948 has been preserved in her namesake state as a memorial to US servicemen. Armed with 10 14-inch guns and displacing 32,000 tons, the battleship is still a formidable sight as she enters into her second century. This expansive volume tells the tale of Texas and her crew. The photography showcases the construction, voyages, modifications, combat action, and ultimate preservation of the ship and shows the vessel as a home, office, and workshop for the crew.
