AN INTERESTING AND INSTRUCTIVE CONTRIBUTION TO THE HISTORY OF WORLD WAR II

The LOG begins with U.S. Sloop Vincennes, which, with the Columbus, was the first American ship to enter Tokyo Harbor (1846).

A contemporaneous account of the shakedown cruise of the U.S. Cruiser Vincennes in 1937 and experiences of the ship before escorting the Hornet on the Doolittle-Tokyo expedition are given.

The contents also include likenesses and biographical sketches of many men lost with the Vincennes; the Chaplain’s Log; experiences at Midway; and a statement concerning the third U.S. Vincennes, launched in 1944.

Richly illustrated throughout with photographs and maps.
