This Would Be Epic: India Goes British For Its Next Aircraft Carrier
Please verify cost before checkout. The realization that the airplane could play a part in naval warfare struck three naval officers at the same time and the same place one each from England, the U. In August the three were official observers at an international air show where they saw aircraft perform previously-unheard-of feats.
These feats included flying nonstop miles, attaining altitudes of feet and flying at 47 miles per hour. The first successful attempt to get an airplane aloft at sea from a ship was accomplished by Eugene Ely, later landing on land. Two months later, Ely made a successful attempt to land on the deck of another naval vessel.
These were the prototypes of the hulking flattops that revolutionized naval warfare in WWII. Search for books in Anyone who is interested in the battles that took place in the Pacific should read this book.
With a nice description of how aircraft carriers came into use by different countries, the author does an excellent job of explaining each carrier battle that took place during World War 2. Filled with photos I've never seen before in other Pacific books, the reader gets to not only read the action, but see it as well. A great read for any World War 2 historian or fan.
