After entering service in WW2 Alabama was briefly deployed to strengthen the British Home Fleet, tasked with protecting convoys to the Soviet Union. In 1943 she hull transferred to the Pacific. There the USS Alabama fought the Japanese. The USS Alabama career involved a number of engagements including the Gilbert and Marshall Islands campaign that began in November that year.
While operating in the Pacific, she served primarily as an escort for the fast carrier task force to protect the aircraft carriers from surface and air attacks. She also frequently bombarded Japanese positions in support of amphibious assaults. She took part in the Mariana and Palau Islands campaign in June–September and the Philippines campaign in October–December. After a refit in early 1945, she returned to the fleet for operations during the Battle of Okinawa and the series of attacks on the Japanese mainland in July and August, including several bombardments of coastal industrial targets.
The USS Alabama currently resides as a museum ship in her berth in Mobile Bay at the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park.
