Title: Battle of Midway, June 1942
Description: View looking astern on USS Pensacola (CA-24) as she steams to the aid of USS Yorktown (CV-5) during the early afternoon of 4 June 1942. Ships following are probably USS Benham (DD-397), at left, and USS Vincennes (CA-44). Wake at far right is probably that of USS Balch (DD-363). These four ships were detached from Task Force 16 to augment the screen of the nearby Task Force 17 after Yorktown was hit and temporarily stopped by Japanese dive bombers. Official U.S. Navy Photograph, now in the collections of the U.S. National Archives.
