If you want to get an idea of Battleship action during WWII read about the BB battles around Guadalcanal during 1942 and 1943. the North Carolina was deep into you.

This is a great reference, thanks! If you have any more exterior shots, they would be most welcome...

I think most of the exterior shots were posted. I spent most of my time below decks; it was a hot day, and I was pretty wrung out when I finally got topside. Didn't have much energy at that point to go up into the superstructure and look around.
