I just now finished reading Enterprise......and although I was but a young boy during the many battles the Big E fought - I had the privilege on 12 Oct 1945 of boarding CV 6 when she entered the locks at Pedro Miguel, Panama Canal Zone. We kids who lived there as our Dad's worked on the locks were able to get "close" as the ships were in the chambers. The sailor that took me aboard was JAMES M BACHINO.......i spent the next 7 hours as we crossed over to the Atlantic side and along with a number of other kids-- were thrilled to visit aboard...........James gave me a small metal ID bracelet with his name along with the silhouette of CV 6 inscribed on it and 58 years later in 2003.....I tried to locate James to no avail as he had passed two years prior. Thanks to the CV 6 Association, I was able to locate his wife Mary.........and I returned this bracelet of Jim's to his widow and of course Mary had no idea that this even existed. I was most proud to have found Mary Bachino - as I was so proud to have met James aboard the Enterprise on 12 Oct 1945. John Schmidt, CMSgt, USAF Retired

While Enterprise opened a few new doors in the storied history of the USS Enterprise (CV-6), it is a lightweight replication of Edward Staffords "The Big E." Perhaps because the ship's history has been told so well in the past, Tillman limits the scope of the ship's exploits to specific events. On the plus side his coverage of the ship's early, pre-war days is new and interesting.

I really enjoyed the book. It is written in a way that keeps one's interest throughout the book. It's almost like reading a novel, it gives a person lots of facts and figures while putting a face on the crew of the Big E.

This book was a great read! Only thing I could have wished for is more pictures! Otherwise, a great book with a lot of detail.

As I was saying the second world war is the most instesing war yet. My favorite battle that the Enterprise was in was the Battle of Midway. And you cannot forget the Battle of Goudacanal. I think it was sad the the Enterprise was sold for scrap. I'm a young kid. And if your asking yourself how I know all this stuff, read my first comment or post: "You must read". If not reread the book Thank you
