Vivid first-hand accounts with action photographs reveal a true picture of war on an aircraft carrier. This is the stirring account of the aircraft carrier at war and the crucial naval actions in which aircraft carriers of all nations have played a pivotal role. The story is told primarily through personal accounts by the men who crewed the carriers and flew the aircraft off the decks, from the open cockpits of the primitive Fleet Air Arm Swordfish torpedo biplanes leading the attack on the Bismarck in 1941, to the clash of the US and Japanese navies at the Battle of Midway, to the lethal hi-tech F/A-18 Hornets of the US Navy during the 1991 Gulf War.
