READ REVIEW

A documentary in word and picture of the Lekington with superb photographs Victor Jorgensen, and occasional other Navy photographs. The text, brief, is also elegiac, sometimes sentimental, and pays commemorative tribute to ""fighting Lady"" and her crew. Captain and officers, routine and drills and briefing planes and pilots and patrols, all provide background for major battle action and aftermath as the Japanese retaliated. The book closes as the wounded ship puts into port, her dead buried at sea....A beautiful book- but timed too late for good sales.
