Intrepid: The Epic Story of America's Most Legendary Warship is a gripping, 4 Star collection of war stories that gets right to the action. The Intrepid's WWII battles cover the first 160 pages of the book. The ship was in the thick of it. Here is an excerpt from Nov 1944, off the Philippine Islands supporting MacArthur's forces.

A kamikaze has already hit the flight deck and caused major casualties. But the crews are fighting the fires and think the ship can be back in action shortly. Until anot

Excellent story about one of the U.S. Navy's most legendary warship.
Her service began in 1943 and sailed into harm's way around the globe. She fought in the Pacific--the Philippines, Okinawa, Formosa--and survived kamikaze and torpedo attacks, and then served as a Cold War attack carrier, a recovery ship for America's first astronauts, and a three-four combatant in Vietnam. The book contains first-hand accounts from survivors of Leyte Gulf, October 1944.

The book is a moving tribute complete wit

A very readable account of one of America's greatest fighting ships. This is a very good overview of the Intrepid's long career including it's conversion into the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. One interesting incident is her return to service in the aftermath of 9/11. The FBI's NY Bureau's headquarters at 7 World Trade Center was destroyed and Intrepid became the FBI-NYPD Joint Terrorism Task Force emergency headquarters. Overall a very enjoyable read.

The life history of the aircraft carrier Intrepid. Definitely an interesting subject, but the book tends to under-develop stories of incidents and the last few chapters degrade into rah-rah for the ship and individuals who championed saving it.

For a book that's fairly light reading, I found it rather enjoyable. The title pretty much says it all - it's about the USS Intrepid from her launching to becoming a current-day museum in NYC.
