Got my AOTS Iowa today. Have to say I am highly disappointed. Having spent time on three of the Iowa’s, I did not think it gave a good impression of the ship, particularly the interior. There is a lot of conjecture, way too much for a ship that exists. I got the impression that the interiors in the book were extrapolated from general plans. The author would have been better served if he had tracked down “Big Jim Slade” on the NJ and brought a removable drive. I was able to find an astonishing number of errors quickly from the stuff I got from him.
Makes me wonder how much artistic license there is in other AOTS books.
