Task Force 58 by Marii Chernev

June 19th, 1944 saw the epic aerial battle for the Marianas Islands take place when Japanese Vice Admiral Ozawa's First Mobile Fleet led the attack against the American Navy's Task Force 58. The ensuing battle led to the destruction of Japanese Carrier Aviation and the disproportionate losses suffered by the Japanese led to the remark attributed to VF-16 pilot Ensign "Ziggy" Neff that the battle turned into a 'Turkey Shoot".
