The Blue Ghost - The Ship That Couldn't Be Sunk (U.S.S. Lexington)


Retail Price: $12.95


By: Art Giberson


This is the story of one of the most beloved and decorated aircraft carriers in U.S. Naval history. The book tells about how she came to be named the USS Lexington in 1942, and of her many exploits during World War II and after.

The Blue Ghost book relates the circumstances of the USS Lexington being reported sunk several times by \'Tokyo Rose\' and why Lady Lex stood as a formidable symbol of strength and determination during the war.

The Blue Ghost - The Ship That Couldn't Be Sunk (U.S.S. Lexington)

The Blue Ghost destroyed or severely damaged over 90,000 tons of enemy shipping and destroyed more than 1,000 enemy aircraft during WWII. USS Lexington recorded more arrested landings than any naval carrier in naval history. Appropriately, she was the first U.S. carrier to enter Tokyo Bay after Japan\'s surrender.

This is a fascinating account of a remarkable carrier which was capably commanded and manned, and won the hearts and admiration of countless men and women throughout her active career.

The USS Lexington was decommissioned in November 1991 at Pensacola, Florida, the \"The Cradle of Naval Aviation\", and serves today as a popular floating naval museum in Corpus Christi, Texas. This is the Revised Third Edition of this book with added photos and content. It was reprinted November .


The Blue Ghost: 72 pages, softbound, 8 x 11, B&W and beautiful color photos
