American Aircraft Carriers
USS Hornet (CV-8)
A Study in Blueprints

by Duane Borchers, Sr.

BK-031 $80.00 (Foreign; $110.00)(11"x17", soft cover book of engineering drawings, 175 pages)
    That wonderful Yorktown class of carriers, (Yorktown (CV-5), Enterprise (CV-6) and Hornet, basically saved the U.S. in the early days of World War II. The Hornet stung the Japanese with Doolittle's B-25 bomber raid on Japan. The Doolittle raid was the brainchild of Captain Donald B. 'Wu' Duncan, Admiral King's air operations officer. Hornet followed this raid by stopping the Japanese at Midway Island. Hornet's final battle at Santa Cruz Island stopped the Japanese re-supply at Guadalcanal. It is my opinion that the battle of Santa Cruz Island was the turning point of the war.
    Ships of class: USS Yorktown (CV-5), USS Enterprise (CV-6) and USS Hornet (CV-8).
