Knowles. The Yamato and her sister ship, the Musashi, were the heaviest and most powerfully armed battleships ever constructed. Built amongst a shroud of secrecy and deception, she was present at a number of engagements including the Battle of Midway and the Battle of the Philippine Sea. Despite having been designed to engage and sink enemy surface vessels, the Yamato would only fire her unrivaled 18.1 inch guns at an enemy surface target on one occasion, in October, 1944 during the Battle of Leyte Gulf. 224 pages, 76 B&W photos, 6¾"x 9¾", hardcover.
