The Fighting Lady

The combat narrative of an aircraft carrier from diversionary action against Marcus Island in 1943 to Kwajalein in early 1944, Truk, the Marianas Turkey Shoot and the Battle of the Philippine Sea.

The absurd proposition of the Japanese war is answered here as completely as possible in 1944.

Steichen’s crew take pictures aboard and aloft in 16mm color later post-synched, aerial gun-cameras record combat action.

The exceptionally patient and diligent narration misses no detail.
