KIRKUS REVIEW

Another one for the naval buff -- this traces the role of the aircraft carrier in naval strategy. The concentration is on World War II with its great decisive carrier battles at sea, battles of the HMS Ark Royal, Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor, and the great Coral Sea and Midway battles. Whitehouse, who has the gift of turning even dry statistics into vital meaningful prose, ends on an analysis of what the aircraft carrier has become today and what role it can still play in the grim game of sea warfare.
