About thi Book:
All hands on deck! This fine fleet of accurately detailed ships includes twenty-eight vessels deployed in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans during World War II. Included — among others — are line drawings of the ill-fated PT-109, commanded by a young John F. Kennedy; one of the many German U-boats that sunk tons of American shipping during the conflict; the USS Hornet, best remembered for launching Lt. Colonel James Doolittle's air raids on Tokyo; and the USS Missouri, the battleship on which the Japanese surrendered. Identifying captions provide information on ship size, firepower, length of service, and other details.
