Sunday, December 7, 1941, dawned clear and bright over the Pacific.

But for the Dauntless dive-bomber crews of the USS Enterprise returning to their home base on Oahu, it was a morning from hell.

Flying directly into the Japanese ambush at Pearl Harbour, they lost a third of their squadron and witnessed the heart of America's Navy, broken and smouldering on the oil-slicked waters below.

The next six months, from Pearl Harbour to the Battle of Midway, a dark time during which the Japanese scored victory after victory, this small band of aviators saw almost constant deployment.
