Joseph Moretz's innovative work focuses on what battleships actually did in the inter-war years and what its designed war role in fact was.

He argues that operational experience, combined with assumptions about the nature of a future naval war, were more important in keeping the battleship afloat than conservatism in Navy.Field Manual 100a5 Operations, 1986.
