Commissioned in 1938, the Enterprise was involved in twenty battles in World War II’s Pacific theater, which included battles at Midway, Guadalcanal, and Iwo Jima. Mr. Tillman recounts the ship’s numerous assignments during the war, from December 1941 to May 1945, and profiles several of the sailors who served on board.
