The Infamous Attact


The cofee cups suddenly went spinning as an explosion knocked Dorie Miller flat on his back. Jumping up from his supine position, the powerfully-built Negro mess man from Waco, Texas headed for the deck. Everywhere that Dorie looked he saw smoke and mammoth warships lying on their sides. Overheated dozens of Japanese dive bombers controlled that skies without a U.S. plane to repulse their attack. The havoc was enormous. Without hesitating, Dorie joined a team which was feeding ammunition to a machine gunner who was making an ineffectual attempt to protect their battleship from being razed by the torpedo planes.
