The USS New York was a U.S. Navy battleship that saw action during the Great War. It was part of the Pacific Fleet that took the Sandwich Islands away from the Britain at the start of the war. Its returning scout float aerplane had put the fleet at battle stations prematurely when it returned from its scouting mission but battle stations were maintained until the shooting began.[1]

It was one of two battleships that served in the Battle of the Three Navies, along with the Dakota, and actually was more heavily damaged during the battle, although it did survive to fight another day.

Literary commentEdit

The USS New York depicted in Southern Victory may not resemble any OTL ship that shares its name.
