The Washington Post
The correct terminology must have been lost at sea
The Aug. 21 news article “Drought unearths sunken Nazi warships, ‘Spanish Stonehenge’ ” referred to ships exposed in European waters because of the drought as “battleships.” A “battleship” is a particular type of warship, such as the Bismarck or the New Jersey. No ship of this type has been discovered in those waters.
