Synopsis: This riveting narrative recounts the role played by U.S. aircraft carriers and Navy pilots in the invasion of Guadalcanal and the ensuing battle for the Eastern Solomons. Historian Eric Hammel guides readers through an examination of the period's U.S. Navy hardware and pilots, explaining and describing carrier construction, the aircraft flown, and pilot training. Unique views of Guadalcanal and the Eastern Solomons are presented exclusively from the perspective of carrier operations, and feature data recently uncovered from U.S. and Japanese sources.
