USS Yorktown: From Design and Construction to the Battles of Coral Sea and Midway (Legends of Warfare: Naval)

USS Yorktown: From Design and Construction to the

USS Yorktown (CV-5) was the US Navy’s first battle-worthy, purpose-built aircraft carrier. Her crew, already accustomed to wartime conditions by maintaining Neutrality Patrols during 1941 in the Atlantic, quickly adapted to the Pacific Theater, having been dispatched there immediately after Pearl Harbor. First at Coral Sea, then at Midway, Yorktown’s flyers blunted the sword of Japanese aggression. The men flying from her decks were instrumental in turning the tide of WWII in the Pacific. This volume explores Yorktown’s construction, prewar and wartime activities through carefully researched photos, many of which have never before been published, which are reproduced in remarkable clarity. This clarity, and the large size of many of the photos, coupled with descriptive and informative captions, puts the reader on the deck of this historic warship throughout her history.

The Fighting Lady Deluxe Edition Featuring USS Yorktown

The Fighting Lady Deluxe Edition Featuring USS

The war against Japan was waged not merely at sea, but in the skies of the Pacific. The U.S. Navy's carrier-based planes bombed and strafed enemy ships and shore bases, and supported amphibious landings. They served as the vanguard of the advance, a fact recognized early on by commanders: the loss of a single carrier could change the complexion of the war. Featured on this DVD are four rare films made by and for the U.S. Navy during WWII. They include the amazing Edward Steichen film "The Fighting Lady", a stunning color documentary that follows the second USS Yorktown in Pacific combat in 1944. The extraordinary film remains one of the most important documents of the air-sea war in the Pacific. Also on this DVD, Life and Death of the USS Hornet, which profiles the carrier which struck Japan in 1942 and fought at Midway, but which was sunk a short time later at Santa Cruz. Also included is Brought to Action, which shows the tumultuous American victory at Leyte, and a short film about the air assault that smashed Japan's fortress island Truk in 1944. Digitally remastered and restored from original 16mm prints. Please note: because of the age and rarity of these films, image and sound quality may vary.

Deadly Sky: The American Combat Airman in World War II

Deadly Sky: The American Combat Airman in World

“From the training camps to the combat missions, this is war from the perspective of the young Americans who lived through it: the pilots, the bombardiers, the navigators, and the gunners of all the combat services in both Europe and in the Pacific. It is an engaging and vivid portrayal of war in the skies from 1941 to 1945.”—Craig L. Symonds, Author of World War II at Sea  John C. McManus, author of The Dead and Those About to Die and September Hope, reveals the terror and triumph that shared the fiery skies of World War II—from the first dogfights over Europe to the last Kamikaze attacks over the Pacific.   This insightful chronicle takes readers inside the experiences of America’s fighter pilots and bomber crews, an incredible assortment of men who, in nearly four years of warfare all over the globe, suffered over 120,000 casualties with over 40,000 killed.   Their stories span the earth into every corner of the combat theaters in both Europe and the Pacific. And the aircraft explored are as varied, tough, and legendary as the men who flew them­—from the indomitable heavy-duty warhorse that was the B-17 Flying Fortress to the sleek, lethal P-51 Mustang fighter.   In Deadly Sky, master historian John C. McManus goes beyond the familiar tales of aerial heroism,...

Aircraft Carriers of the United States Navy (Images of War)

Aircraft Carriers of the United States Navy (Images

In 1922 the US Navy commissioned its first small experimental aircraft carrier. This was followed into service by two much larger and capable carriers in 1927 with five more being built prior to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor including three large Yorktown class.

To take the offensive against the Japanese Navy, the American Congress funded by far the largest carrier building programme in history based on the Essex class, a larger version of the pre-war Yorktown vessels. Of the twenty-six ordered, fourteen were commissioned in time to see Second World War service. These were joined by many smaller classes of carriers, including light carriers and escort carriers.
Post-war ever larger and more capable carriers were commissioned. Since 1975, when the first of a fleet of ten nuclear-powered Nimitz class carriers was commissioned, they have epitomized United States superpower status and worldwide power projection. These are due to be replaced in the decades to come with the even more sophisticated nuclear-powered Gerald R. Ford class.

Compiled and written by Michael Green, Aircraft Carriers of the United States Navy contains superb images of all the different types of classes of carriers employed by the US Navy since 1922. These and its highly informative text and cap...
