Would it be helpful to add (perhaps vague) dates for these eras? The Battleship bit seems a bit overlong and despite understanding it well I lose track of it as it moves from pre WWI to WWI to interwar to WWII as no dates are really mentioned.

I'm also worried about how the page isn't really separated into eras but into types of naval ships, which is already another article. While galley -> sail -> battleship -> carrier goes well, and that reasonably splits into guided missile ships, the submarine is pretty much concurrent with the battleship and every subsequent era, and it's a bit hard to place it.

Hmm. The Crowning Moment Of Awesome entry for WWII seems to have vanished, the Samar listing mentions it still. :p

Too bad, the battle was a highlight for great tactics, suicidal craziness, and big damned heroes, and a lowlight for Japan, their main fleet was pushed back by a little group of destroyers, destroyer escorts, and escort carriers. Japan had multiple battleships, INCLUDING YAMATO, and several cruisers.

And they got pushed back by dinky little ships. ^_^

NINE battleship vs battleship engagements in WW2? I only count 5:

Two came during the pursuit of the Bismarck, then you have 2nd Guadalcanal, North Cape, and Surigao Strait. What are the other 4?
