KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the book based on the same material from which the documentary film, Fighting Lady, was made, and the text supplements the picture with greater intimacy of detail, with pen portraits (and photographs) of the men and officers, and with all sorts of facts and figures that will appeal to any air-struck youngster (or adult for that matter). Gallant story -- in personal terms -- in terms of achievements -- in terms of what war is like, from the start of the Pacific offensive. An action story of men and ships, -- the Yorktown and the Essex.
