KIRKUS REVIEW

Specific account of night landings of the 19th of June, 1942, as fighters and bombers of Task Force 58 tried to find their carriers after the battle with the Japanese fleet. A story of tight going and tricky work that provided aerial miracles in a landing stampede of planes and pilots; the responsibilities of those aboard the carriers; the rescue work of destroyers and escort ships; foul ups and rogue ships; obstacles of dwindling fuel, misunderstood signals...A graphic telling aviation record illustrated with 24 pages of half tones. Tops among aviation books.
