USS Lexington CV-2
Wiper, Steve
ISBN: 9780982358337
Classic Warships Publishing  2009 
4to - over 9" - 12" tall Soft Cover New book, 72 pages. There are 70 black and white photos, one colorized photo on the front cover and four color photos of her on the back cover. This book is a more in-depth look at the Lexington during her 1937 thru 1942 career. Since the previous book was released more photos have been found and Steve includes them in this new book. As always they are reproduced with the maximum amount of detail possible. The photos are nicely captioned and show the important features of the ship. They show the dramatic transformation the ship went thru leading up to and during World War Two. Most of these photos have never appeared in public before. Also included are the May 1941 refit drawings and a portion of her final refit drawings from April 1942. Copies of documents listing changes made to the carrier are provided as well. There have always been a lot of questions about the carriers rebuilding in April 42 before her loss at the Battle of the Coral Sea and this book should finally lay all of those to rest. Of particular interest is the labeled photos pointing out the locations of the 50 cal and 1.1" gun mounts as well as other notable features. Some images have been pulled from film footage and enhanced to show many of the shadowy details in new light. Images of the destroyers attending to the Lexington in her final moments is equally fascinating.  As New
