This month sees the release of 'US Heavy Cruisers 1941-1945.'

I delved into this because I didn't know much about this class of ship, except that they played a significant role in the Pacific Ocean in World War II.

After a bit of research I found some related stock footage - something I always love doing.

The video below, from the Periscope LLC archive, shows some of the wartime career of a US Navy cruiser in the Pacific.

I couldn't however, identify which class exactly it was.

Do any of you fans know which type of ship this is? As far as I can hear, the narrator only names this ship 'Your ship'. Any expert knowledge/eagle-eyed ship recognition skills would be greatly appreciated! 

And if you are interested in the subject, head on down to the store to order a copy for £9.99!
