The devastation at Pearl Harbor, the action at Midway, the near destruction of his ship in the Eastern Solomon Islands, and the great Turkey Shoot in the skies over the Philippine Sea—Chuck Avery witnessed them all between December 7, 1941 and June 20, 1944. Although this Aviation Ordnanceman was born and raised in Colorado, most of the action within his true story takes place on board the aircraft carrier, USS Enterprise (CV-6), the most famous and glorified United States ship to survive World War II. Chuck's story reads like a fast paced novel, but it includes elements found in well-researched documentaries, such as end notes, references, an index, and digitalized photographs of the main characters.
