THAT GALLANT SHIP: USS Yorktown (CV-5). Extremely well researched, readers will have no trouble understanding the ship's history, especially the minute-by-minute, blow by blow final battle with the Japanese at Midway, June '44

Click to EnlargeTHAT GALLANT SHIP: USS Yorktown (CV-5). by Robert Cressman -- Navy Ship. This is probably the finest book ever written about the USS Yorktown (CV-5). When Yorktown was sunk at the Battle of Midway in June 1942, the ship, its crew, and the embarked air group had already become a permanent part of US Navy history for their valiant efforts at Midway and earlier in the Coral Sea. The author studied a multitude of naval records, actoin reports, deck logs, personal interviews, and photos in order to prepare this book. It is extremely well researched, and readers will have no trouble in understanding the ship's history, especially the minute-by-minute, blow by blow final battle with the Japanese. The narrative for the final hours is a gut-wrenching, painful story of the unsuccessful struggle to keep her afloat. Students of World War Two navy history need to include this book in their collection. Softcover. Many fascinating b/w photos. 196 pages. Full bibliography.
