Product description

Though it barely missed being caught and destroyed at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, the US Navy's USS†Enterprise†(CV-6) aircraft carrier took part in every major action of the Pacific War, from the Doolittle Raid to the battles of Midway, Santa Cruz, and Guadalcanal to the Philippine Sea and Leyte. Affectionately known as the "Big E," as well as as the "fightingest ship in the Navy," the†Enterprise†racked up one of the most impressive tallies of damage to the enemy of any Allied warship during WWII. This book explores†Enterprise's design and construction, wartime activities, and ultimate postwar decommissioning and scrapping through carefully researched photos, many of which have never before been published. The clarity and large size of many of the photos, coupled with descriptive and informative captions, put the reader on the deck of this historic warship throughout its famed history.
