The Great War, USS Texas, and the Grand Fleet
USS Texas's much less remembered service with the Allied Grand Fleet during the Great War reminds us that sometimes the most important battle is the one you do not have to fight.
USS Texas saw important service during the Second World War, including the Normandy Invasion. But the ship’s much less remembered service with the Allied Grand Fleet during the Great War reminds us that sometimes the most important battle is the one you do not have to fight.
