Description

Berner. One of the U.S. Navy's major shipbuilding and repair yards, the Brooklyn Navy Yard produced more than 80 warships, including the Monitor, the Maine, the Arizona and the Missouri. This heavily illustrated book examines the fascinating history of the yard, from its 1801 opening through World War II (when it employed some 70,000 people) and its 1966 closure. 128 pages, 200 B&W photographs, 6½"x 9¼", softcover.
