Enterprise : America's fightingest ship and the men who helped win World War II by Barrett Tillman( Book )
4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 648 libraries worldwide
The USS Enterprise took part in twenty battles during World War II--no other American ship came close. Enterprise is credited with sinking or wrecking 71 Japanese ships and destroying 911 enemy aircraft. This is the epic, heroic story of this legendary aircraft carrier--nicknamed "the fightingest ship" in the U.S. Navy--and of the men who fought and died on her. She was commissioned in 1938, and her bombers sank a submarine just three days after the Pearl Harbor attack, claiming the first seagoing Japanese vessel lost in the war. Barrett Tillman has been called "the man who owns naval aviation history." He's mined official records and oral histories as well as his own interviews to give us not only a portrait of the ship's unique contribution to winning the Pacific war, but also unforgettable portraits of the men who flew from her deck and worked behind the scenes to make success possible.--From publisher description
