[128692]

Warship Pictorial 44: USS Yorktown CV-5.
WP44 is a pictorial history of one of the more famous aircraft carriers in the US Navy. Commissioned a few years prior to WWII, she would be one of the primary contenders in Americas fight for survival in the first year of the Pacific War, The early "Hit and Run" raids, the Battle of Coral Sea, until her loss at the Battle of Midway in June 1942. Her history is covered extensively with very detailed photography of nearly every aspect of this once great warship. A written history is provided, as well as extensive captions on each photograph. Many aspects of her are pointed out in the photographs, a few of which are printed here for the first time. This book is yet one more fantastic photo study of a warship in the extensive Warship Pictorial Series books.
With 10 color, 81 b/w images and 4 illustrations.
