Richard L. Schwoebel (a.); Sidney Drell (foreword). The explosion aboard the battleship “Iowa” in 1989 that killed 47 crewmen during a routine gunnery exercise was a tragedy not only for the family & friends of those who died but for the U.S. Navy, whose awkward attempts to determine a cause failed miserably. When Navy investigators concluded that the explosion (in one of the warship’s huge 16-inch guns) was not an accident but a deliberate act by a member of the crew who died in the blast, there was a public outcry. Schwoebel tells how investigators could find no conclusive evidence to support the Navy’s claim. But Schwoebel’s team did find critical safety deficiencies in the “Iowa’s” gun systems, & he clearly defines them in layman’s terms. Illustrated.
