Deeply impressive tour of USA's mightiest class of battleships.
These ships were not designed for tall people like myself.
Hardship and great dangers aboard were profound, especially among the boiler and propulsion systems. Lack of steam containment meant instant cooking to death in the entire section.
See tiny quarters where General Hap Arnold and FDR stayed on board. FDR sailed her across the Atlantic, to meet Joe Stalin. They even had an armored saferoom where they would rush the president, in case of attack. Captain's quarters were no better.
