Nevada class Battleship

Nevada and Oklahoma were rebuilt in 1927-29. Oklahoma was sunk, capsizing, at Pearl Harbor, and Nevada was damaged badly enough that it was rebuilt like Pennsylvania, California, and West Virginia.

Nevada first served up in the Aleutian Islands and then was the American flagship at Normandy. After the invasion of southern France, it went to the Pacific where it served at Iwo Jima and Okinawa.
