No Higher Honor
by Jeff Nesmith
The story of USS Yorktown
No Higher Honor is full of original material, and the pages are heavy with dialogue. Midway was not an inglorious moment for the 2,000 men who would abandon ship early in the morning of June 4, 1942. They had fought gallantly in what Nesmith calls "one of the great naval battles of history, one that would turn the momentum of the war in the Pacific away from Japan in favor of the United States." They are well served by this engaging tribute. --John J. Miller
