Steady Nerves and Stout Hearts

by Robert J. Cressman, J. Michael Wenger, and John F. Divirgilio

This book began as an article recounting the trials and tribulations of the 36 men (Enterprise's air group commander, his passenger, 13 crews from Scouting Squadron Six and four from Bombing Six) who were Pearl-bound on the morning of 7 December 1941.

As that work progressed, however, the authors became convinced that, almost without exception, none of the accounts of Pearl Harbor that had emerged over the years preceding their efforts described accurately the experiences of these men nor detailed what other operations the carrier Enterprise (CV-6) and her air group conducted on that day.

Therefore this book identifies the men from the Enterprise who were in the air that morning in the skies near or over O'ahu and details what happened to them.

Soft cover. 112 pages. Includes black and white photographs and maps.

Challenge Coin

I was very pleased with the quality of the coin.


I really liked the tee shirt's color and design. However, the size was too small for me. I normally wear a large. I don't know why it was so tight. Perhaps it was the material from which it was made (polyester).

Not signed no communication from the store

I left the rating at a 5 cuz the book is great but don’t think it’s coming from the store signed as indicated or that you’ll be able to get ahold of anyone I have sent 3 emails and still nothing.

i bought this originally when i went to Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. A few weeks ago i lost this pin and was devastated. I didn’t know what life even meant anymore, I searched for about a week before i found these on this page. I was so grateful and happy I could have happiness again !!!
