USS Maryland, first commissioned of the Colorado class the most graceful American battleships produced: the hull a smooth sweeping curve from clipper bow to cut-down quater-deck; the slim angular twin turrets; the lack of hull casemates; the tall cage-masts capped with their fighting tops; all give the ships a surprisingly airy look and balance similar to a tall ship while losing none of the dreadnought's solidity and stability.

Oct 12, 1946. Heavy cruiser IJNS AOBA [one of the ships that destroyed HMAS CANBERRA] on the bottom of Kure Harbour.HMAS CANBERRA [I] was the first ship lost, wrecked without being able to return fire. The American cruisers USS QUINCY, VINCENNES and ASTORIA were sunk soon after , as Mikawa's force sped down 'The Slot,' raking the confused and disordered Allied forces as it did so. The Battle of Savo Island was a costly avoidable disaster which is still controversial.
