Publisher's Comments

Drawing on his extensive service on several destroyers from World War II through combat in Vietnam, where he was captain of the first nuclear-powered carrier, Admiral Holloway (retired, US Navy) traces the history and operations of US naval aviation. He also explains why, after six decades, the aircraft carrier still has a key role to play in national security. Period photographs are from his private collection.
