Dogfight over Tokyo: The Final Air Battle of the Pacific and the Last Four Men to Die in World War II by John Wukovits

US Navy carrier, USS Yorktown early on the morning of August 15, 1945, they had no idea they were about to carry out the final air mission of World War II. Two hours later, Yorktown received word from Admiral Nimitz that the war had ended and that all offensive operations should cease. As they were turning back, twenty Japanese planes suddenly dove from the sky above them and began a ferocious attack. Four American pilots never returned--men who had lifted off from the carrier in wartime but were shot down during peacetime. Drawing on participant letters, diaries, and interviews, newspaper and radio accounts, and previously untapped archival records, historian and prolific author of acclaimed Pacific theater books, including TIN CAN TITANS and HELL FROM THE HEAVENS, John Wukovits tells the story of Air Group 88's pilots and crew through their eyes.
