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.

Published by the National Park Service and Pacific Historic Parks.

Perfect

Everything was perfect. My husband is a Veteran and enjoyed this gift very much. Thank you.

Enjoyed the book I always like reading real history.
One of the cups was completely destroyed, sent you an email when received got no reply, not happy on this
Got no geek patch or black tears.
What I did get intact (book & 1 cup) proved to be quite expensive…………

Loved it so much we bought it twice

My parents brought this shirt back as a souvenir for my 4 year old daughter. She wore it constantly until the day she discovered scissors 😭. She cut it up and was so proud of herself until I freaked out, then we both cried… I would usually take this opportunity to teach a lesson about scissors and say “sorry, you’re SOL.” But this gift was so loved and I felt she learned her lesson when she realized she had ruined it rather than improving it.

Great quality sticker

I bought it to put with my photo book and keepsakes from my trip to visit this incredible memorial.

Great coin

Just a beautiful tribute to those who served at Pearl Harbor on that fateful December 7th.
