Outstanding book for the Naval Historian or WWII Serious buff! This compilation of narratives from naval aviators of the time provide first hand information on tactics, the "real" operations and skill sets, personalities of Task Force and theater admirals. Worth the read.

Some interesting stories, some stories I was mostly familiar with from other books, and some stories that were pretty worthless. Also, none of the people writing seem to be particularly good writers.
