Pacific Payback : The Carrier Aviators Who Avenged Pearl Harbor at the Battle of Midway (Unabridged)
about this item
Sunday, December 7, 1941, dawned clear and bright over the Pacific. But for the Dauntless dive-bomber crews of the USS Enterprise returning to their home base on Oahu, it was a morning from hell. Flying directly into the Japanese ambush at Pearl Harbor, they lost a third of their squadron and witnessed the heart of America’s Navy broken and smoldering on the oil-slicked waters below. The next six months, from Pearl Harbor to the Battle of Midway—a dark time during which the Japanese scored victory after victory—this small band of aviators saw almost constant deployment, intense carrier combat, and fearsome casualties.
