Description
 
John C. Wren (au). Assesses a number of issues concerning the explosion aboard the U.S.S. Iowa on April 19, 1989, when 47 sailors died when 5 bags of propellant ignited in the open chamber of the center 16-inch gun of turret II. The Navy’s investigation concluded that the explosion resulted from a deliberate act & not from a defect in the gun or propellant. The overall battleship program of the U.S. Navy is also reviewed. Addresses the Navy’s technical investigation of the explosion; the serviceability, supportability, & safety of the battleships’ 16-inch guns & ammunition; the battleships’ manning levels & training of assigned personnel; the gunnery experiments that were being conducted on board the Iowa; & the battleship employment plan. Charts, tables & photos.
