Product description


A stirring tribute to the heroes of carrier warfare in World War II. Thirty firsthand accounts by the officers and men who served aboard carriers and those who flew the aircraft from their decks illuminate with dramatic intensity the invaluable contribution of carrier operations that helped to turn the tide of war in the Pacific theater and led to the final Allied victory over Japan. --Sea Power

This is a story of guts, sacrifice, terror, and exhilaration to be savored by anyone interested in the carrier as the ultimate war machine. --Publishers Weekly
