Item description for USS Yorktown At Midway by Stanford E. Linzey, Jr....

In the epic Battle of Midway, USS Yorktown, with 2,500 men aboard, received three bomb hits and two torpedoes. Eighty-six men died instantly-many were wounded. At the command, "Abandon ship!" the crew slid down the lines into the murky, oily waters of the Pacific. Barefoot survivors knelt on the steel deck of a rescuing war ship and offered thanks to the Almighty. The author is a survivor. "USS Yorktown at Midway is interesting and gives the true account of the author's experiences. We can see him as a sailor who admires and serves the Navy and his country. Dr. Linzey believes that God is the One who gives the victory." Jacob De Shazer "Stanford Linzey is one of our great Christian (Pentecostal) heroes of World War II. His Yorktown story is first-class reading. The ship went down, but this book you won't put down." Sherwood E. Wirt San Diego Christian Writers' Guild "Very seldom do I pick up a book and read it in one sitting, but I did yours, and I can honestly say: USS Yorktown at Midway is a most compelling and dynamic epic. Stan Linzey's story takes you through the troubled waters of life until he returned to sea and later his church to extend the hand of GOD to those of us who were honored to serve with him." Rear Admiral William H. Harris, U.S. Navy (Ret.) "You can smell, hear, and feel the tense excitement of the crew of the USS Yorktown as they prepare and launch their air attacks and experience their fear and determination as they in turn are hit. Captain Linzey's ability to portray these feelings and to define the meaning of the events of which he writes is outstanding, and the fact that he does it from a religious perspective adds something that has often been missed. This book is a must read." Rear Admiral Paul A. Peck, U.S. Navy (Ret.) Captain Stanford E. Linzey, Chaplain, USN (Ret.)
