This review is from: Enterprise: America's Fightingest Ship and the Men Who Helped Win World War II (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have been a World War II buff for decades, and Mr. Tillman's account of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise is one of the most fascinating, heart-stopping and enjoyable books I've ever read on the subject. The author has written the book in such an engaging manner, it seems as though he's in the room with you directing the narrative to you personally. This is the hair-raising history of "America's Fightingest Ship", and the action and rip-roaring adventure is almost non-stop from first page to last. The author himself interviewed many of "Big E's" veterans, and the story of the Enterprise is filled with information that I had not encountered previously. Mr. Tillman has brilliantly captured the spirit of the heroic aviators and crews associated with the Enterprise, whose history dominated WWII's greatest sea battles, claiming close to two thousand enemy planes and ships. If you want a thrilling account instead of a dry bunch of factoids and statistics, you will love ENTERPRISE.
