During her often dangerous duty in World War II the Enterprise won 20 battle stars, sank 71 enemy vessels, and destroyed 911 enemy aircraft. The Japanese reported sinking Enterprise six times––but she managed to survive every time. Here is her fantastic yet true story. 1964 Paperback edition. 512 pages, 1 map, no photos, or index.
