Sweet Pea at War: A History of USS Portland
(Lexington: University Press of Kentucky, 2003).
256 Pages, 6x9, 16 photographs, 5 maps, $29.95 cloth, ISBN 0-8131-2286-4.
A history of what I argue was the greatest heavy cruiser ever, and it also accounts for the life of the men who sailed in her, too, and that makes it a terrific story.
Based on extensive research in official documents and interviews with members of the ship’s crew, Sweet Pea at War recounts from launching to scrapping the history of USS Portland, demonstrating that she deserves to be remembered as one of the most important ships in U.S. naval history.

I wanted to point out an eBay auction I am currently running for a USS Vance ship plaque. This item is on consignment to me, and I thought you might want to post the information in your "For Sail" (sic) section.
I was able to look up the ship's commissioning information on your site so I thank you for that.
The eBay item number is 2193442550. The auction ends a week from today, Tuesday, September 23, 2003 .
