Enterprise : America's fightingest ship and the men who helped win World War II by Barrett Tillman( Book )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The USS Enterprise took part in twenty battles during World War II--no other American ship came close. Enterprise is credited with sinking or wrecking 71 Japanese ships and destroying 911 enemy aircraft. This is the epic, heroic story of this legendary aircraft carrier--nicknamed "the fightingest ship" in the U.S. Navy--and of the men who fought and died on her. She was commissioned in 1938, and her bombers sank a submarine just three days after the Pearl Harbor attack, claiming the first seagoing Japanese vessel lost in the war. Barrett Tillman has been called "the man who owns naval aviation history." He's mined official records and oral histories as well as his own interviews to give us not only a portrait of the ship's unique contribution to winning the Pacific war, but also unforgettable portraits of the men who flew from her deck and worked behind the scenes to make success possible.--From publisher description

LeMay by Barrett Tillman( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

LeMay was a terrifying, complex, and brilliant general. In World War II, he ordered the firebombing of Tokyo and was in charge when there were Atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He was responsible for tens of thousands of civilian deaths a fact he liked to celebrate by smoking Cuban cigars. But LeMay was also the man who single-handedly transformed the American air force from a ramshackle team of poorly-trained and badly equipped pilots into one of the fiercest and most efficient weapons of the war. Over the last decades, most U.S. military missions were carried out entirely through the employment of the air force - this is LeMay's legacy. Packed with breathtaking battles in the air and inspiring leadership tactics on the ground, "LeMay" will keep readers on their edge of their seats

The Dauntless dive bomber of World War Two by Barrett Tillman( Book )

18 editions published between 1976 and 2014 in English and Czech and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Popularly known as the Douglas Dauntless, the U.S. Navy's SBD dive bomber was well named. Though considered obsolete at the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Dauntless turned the tide of war in the Pacific with the destruction of four Japanese carriers at the Battle of Midway, making its mark in aviation history for sinking more enemy carriers than any other aircraft. Still in service at war's end, the Dauntless was the only U.S. carrier aircraft in operation from Pearl Harbor to V-J Day. The Dauntless was the only American Navy aircraft to fly in al five of the naval engagements fought exclusively by aircraft carriers and was credited with sinking the first Japanese fleet submarine and dropping the first bombs on Japanese-occupied soil during the war. The SBD was also active in the Atlantic, sinking Vichy French shipping at Casablanca and German vessels in Scandinavian waters. In between his authoritative accounts of these missions, Barrett Tillman tells the rousing story of the men who took the "slow but deadly" Dauntless into combat, loving her for her ruggedness and dependability while wishing for more speed and firepower. Among the people he describes is the pilot who nearly single-handedly knocked out a Japanese carrier and died in the process, and SBD squadron that flew unexpectedly into the Pearl Harbor attack. Filled with fascinating photographs, this book was widely acclaimed in 1976 when first published and is now available for the first time in paperback
