USS
Yorktown
(CV-5) was the US Navy’s first battle-worthy, purpose-built
aircraft carrier. Her crew, already accustomed to wartime conditions by
maintainingNeutrality Patrols during 1941 in the Atlantic, quickly adapted
to the Pacific Theater, having been dispatched there immediately after
Pearl Harbor. First at Coral Sea, then at Midway,
Yorktown’s
flyers blunted
the sword of Japanese aggression. The men flying from her decks were
instrumental in turning the tide ofWWII in the Pacific.This volume explores
Yorktown’s
construction, prewar and wartime activities through carefully
researched photos, many of which have never before been published, which
are reproduced in remarkable clarity.This clarity, and the large size of many
of the photos, coupled with descriptive and informative captions, puts the
reader on the deck of this historic warship throughout her history.
Author of over 100 books,
David Doyle

most to the historic preservation of military vehicles worldwide” in 2015
