Sample text

Right, bottom: Smoke rises from the USS Saratoga after a Japanese attack off Iwo Jima, 21 February 1945. Above, left: The forward end of Saratoga's flight deck, showing two Hellcat aircraft and the remains of a third. Saratoga was struck by four bombs and two Kamikazes while providing air support for the Marines ashore. Below: The USS Franklin on fire after being struck by a Japanese Kamikaze dUring operations off Okinawa on 19 March 1945. A total of 832 personnel died in or after the attack and only damage control of a high order saved the ship.

It was a defeat from which Japanese naval aviation never recovered. CARRIER WAR 43 Above: The Americans did not escape loss-free at Midway. Aircraft from Hiryu found the American carrier Yorktown and damaged her; two days later she was finished off by the Japanese submarine J168. Right, upper: One of the first major operations for the American carrier task groups was a raid on the harbour of Rabaul in New Guinea, where a powerful Japanese squadron threatened US forces engaged at Bougainville. A surprise strik was planned using the carriers Saratoga and Princeton.

Above: The escort carrier HMS Nairana in the Clyde on com- pletion in February 1944. Escort carriers were built using merchant ship hulls and machinery or converted from merchant ships already under construction (Nairana was built as the Port Victor until purchased). Fleet carriers took too long to build in any number so escort carriers, or 'Woolworth carriers' as they were known, filled the gap - and did so very creditably. Right: HMS Avenger, an American-built escort carrier, under way with her 'air group' of six Sea Hurricanes ranged on deck.
