Rate this:
Operating from seaborne bases and able to function in most weather, aircraft carriers enabled planes to attack with a freedom that changed the conduct of battle at sea forever. A valuable history recounts their rough beginnings in the First World War; the developments made by Britain, the US, and Japan in technology and strategy; and how carriers supplanted traditional capital ships as the core of naval warfare. Includes superb photographs and reports of their wartime engagements-successful and not.
