NO HIGHER HONOR: The USS Yorktown At the Battle of Midway, by Jeff Nesmith. This is an inspiring account of young warriors and old heroes: the men of the USS Yorktown, the aircraft carrier which on June 4, 1942, fought one of the great naval battles of all time. The Yorktown, already badly damaged, endured waves of aerial assaults that day and tons of explosives, eventually sinking. 84 men died, but more than 2,000 survived. Young and idealistic, the men who won this sea battle had an uncluttered sense of purpose, patriotism, and love of country. This is their story, told with the passion of that fiery day through the perspective of more fifty years, by a Pulitzer-winning journalist. Hard cover. 280 pages. B/w action photos.
