On a quiet Sunday morning in 1941, a ship designed to keep the peace was suddenly attacked. This book tells the remarkable story of a battleship, its brave crew, and how their lives were intertwined.

Jeff Phister and his coauthors have written the comprehensive history of the USS Oklahoma from its christening in 1914 to its final loss in 1947. Phister tells how the Oklahoma served in World War I, participated in the Great Cruise of 1925, and evacuated refugees from Spain in 1936. But the most memorable event of the ship’s history occurred on December 7, 1941.

Phister weaves the personal narratives of surviving crewmen with the necessary technical information to recreate the attack and demonstrate the full scope of its devastation. Captured Japanese photographs and dozens of historic U.S. Navy photographs deepen our understanding of this monumental event.

Raised after the attack, the Oklahoma sank again while being towed stateside and now rests on the ocean floor, 540 miles northeast of Oahu. Battleship Oklahoma: BB-37 tells the complete story of a proud ship and her fall through the eyes of those who survived her loss.

 

Battleship Oklahoma, by Jeff Phister, is the story of the USS Oklahoma, BB-37, the second Nevada class battleship built by the New York Shipbuilding Corporation for the United States Navy in 1910. These two ships were happily welcomed by US Navy sailors as they brought the navy into the oil fuel age, the equivalent to nuclear power in the 50s. No longer would men bake while shoveling coal into furnaces, and cleaning the ship would be so much easier now that coal dust no longer existed aboard.

She was commissioned in 1916, and served in World War I as a member of Battleship Division 6, protecting Allied convoys sailing across the Atlantic. Oklahoma was modernized between 1927 and 1929, receiving her tripod masts, and on December 7th, 1941, she was sunk by several torpedoes during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

Phister covers much of the battleships history, and best of all, includes numerous antidotes from the crew members themselves. Oklahoma’s story at Pearl is poignant, as so many were trapped within the confines of her hull. A few lucky ones escaped, but so many perished.

Battleship Oklahoma is a must read for anyone interested in naval warfare, as so much of the book contains new information. Bravo Zulu to Phister for his thorough research on the subject.

Just received the book and begun to brose it. I am pleased with it. I am interested in the section with the names of the men lost in the attack quite haunting! A great addition to my book collection on World War 2!!
Great book. Well written and easy to read but very factual.
Great book on the brave men who servived and perished on the USS Oklahoma.
Few know the stories of the trapped men who suffocated and died in steel rooms of their capsized battleship as water levels rose in their upside down ship. Their bodies were not recovered until two years later having been under water. Most were never identified. Anti-aircraft guns were ordered disabled for an inspection on Monday. They never had a chance when the attack came Sunday morning.
Good read, a lot of information. Wished there was a little more detail on ship's design and early life.
5 stars
Lots of history here, good for any history buff or anyone interested in knowing more about Pearl and WW2. As a Navy vet, I really enjoyed this little piece of Naval history and culture. I can't get enough of our "greatest generation" and their stories and sacrifices.
