All the Factors of Victory: Admiral Joseph Mason Reeves and the Origins of Carrier Air Powerby Thomas Wildenberg
Adm. Joseph Mason Reeves (1872�1948) took command of the U.S. Navy�s nascent carrier arm during a critical period, transforming it from a small auxiliary command in support of the battle line into a powerful strike force. Until the carrier commanders of World War II proved their mettle, Reeves�s expertise in the use of the aircraft carrier in naval tactics was unequalled. All the Factors of Victory is the first fulllength biography of this eminent naval officer.
