Up for sale is a very rare cruise book from CV-45 the USS Valley Forge.

Unusual for books from this period, the introduction contains a tipped-in color photo of the Valley Forge above the note from Captain Pederson.
Otherwise the book contains original photos, cartoons, notes, and scenes of everyday life onboard. A must for any fan of the US Navy in the Korean War, this book is in Fair to Good condition.The top-right corner has seen a heavy hit which dented the cover and some pages, while the edges and corners have seen some significant wear.
