Sketch of a Ship
Sketch of a ship to correspond with this text: "Our nation was engaged in a great military conflict in the year 1942. American military pride was given a series of rude shocks as our forces were shoved off island after island in the Pacific. The chief defeat was the collapse of Bataan after a hopeless, heroic stand by last-ditch defenders on Corregidor. Relief from a long series of setbacks came in May when our Naval fleet defeated a Japanese armada in the battle of the Coral Sea, and again in June when our torpedo bombers routed an enemy task force in the Battle of Midway."
