Sunken Ships World War II: US Naval Chronology, Including Submarine Losses of the United States, England, Germany, Japan, Italy
Sunken Ships of World War II is truly one of the greatest compendiums of naval history that has ever been put together. Not only does it give an exhaustive chronology of events and ac-tions of the United States Navy, it also contains listings of the Al-lies (American and English) and of the Axis (Japanese, German and Italian) naval losses wherever they took place. Each of the more than 350 pages of this book is packed with minute informa-tion on each sunken vessel. Entries also include the most available information on the commanders, crews, size, displacement and location in degrees of each vessel, the battles, the forces, and just about any other particular information of interest on each vessel. By any measurement Sunken Ships of World War II stands alone for its depth and breath of the information revealed in its detailed pages

This could be a good reference, but it has multiple inaccuracies. Neither CV 17 nor CV18 were sunk. In fact the US Navy never lost an Essex Class Aircraft Carrier in battle, ever.
LST 557 was not sunk in Okinawa, Japan. It was comissioned to go to China to be repaired and owned by the Chinese Gov't.
