KIRKUS REVIEW

British, Australian, American, ships of heroic legend in this war provide tales of courage, action, either as part of a fleet or in individual duels. From 1939 to 1943 here are the stories of important, sometimes decisive, engagements as the tales of the Ajax, Achilles, Exeter, Sydney, Jervis Bay, Hood, Illustrious, Penelope, the Lexington, Yorktown, Enterprise, Hornet, Salt Lake City, Boise, South Dakota, San Francisco, are again, and ably, recounted. From Norway to the Mediterranean to the Pacific, from the highest to the lowest aboard, from defeat to victory and defeat avenged -- these naval battles make good reading for marine minded boys.
