Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth. Edwin Palmer Hoyt (b. August 5, 1923, Portland, Oregon - d. July 29, 2005, Tokyo, Japan)military and naval historian. "Never before had carrier been matched again st carrier, and this time 'Lexington' and 'Yorktown' found themselves up against the powerful Japanese fleet carriers, 'Zuikaku' and 'Shokaku', both veterans of the Pearl Harbor attack." "In the spring of 1942, following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, when American prestige and morale were at a low ebb, it seemed quite possible that the war was lost. The Japanese were advancing on all fronts. They had captured Singapore, Hong Kong, the Philippines and had overrun Southeast Asia. Now they were heading for Australia. - Few writers can sustain the kind of exciting narrative that distinguishes this account of brave men of two lands fighting each other to death, carrying as it does, the chill and excitement of history." - from the dj.
