    The only Army Battle Ship?

    I've always had an interest in fortifications, from the vitrified forts in the Old World to the present defensive structures around the world. The following link is full of info and first hand accounts of the USS No Go. A good read.

    I have read about the surrender of corregidor to the Japs and our latter battle to retake it. I had not heard how small fortified islands next to it were retaken. Thanks for sharing--
