ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Sept. 5, 2018 - PRLog -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for USS New Mexico BB-40

Local authors John Taylor, Richard Melzer, Dick Brown and Greg Trapp will be available to sign copies of book


USS New Mexico (BB-40) was commissioned into the fleet near the end of World War I, and the battleship's name was a great honor bestowed upon a state that was but five years old. Because of her superlative performance, New Mexico came to be known as the "Queen of the Seas." During World War II, she was one of the fiercest fighting ships in the Pacific theater, earning six battle stars. This book describes how battleships evolved over the years, how New Mexico was constructed and later modernized, and how she proudly displayed the American flag across two oceans. At the same time, it offers a rare glimpse into her inner workings, shipboard life, and her role in taking the fight to the enemy after the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. The sailing list for USS New Mexico (BB-40) reflects the highest credit upon her officers and crew. These men signed their names to naval history and will long be remembered for their incredible service to the Navy and the nation.

About the Author:

This book on USS New Mexico (BB-40) is the work of a unique team of authors—retired nuclear engineer John Taylor, history professor Richard Melzer, retired electrical engineer Dick Brown, and lawyer Greg Trapp—all avid memorabilia collectors of this state's namesake battleship.
