Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Aircraft carriers became the dominant weapon of the seas in the Pacific during the Second World War. Manned by trained crews and adept pilots, carriers were floating air bases used to strike at the heart of the enemy's fleet. Able to deliver a massive amount of explosive power against an opponent, aircraft carriers became the tool of naval commanders to cripple their enemies. In battles such as Leyte Gulf, The Coral Sea and Midway Island, it was the aircraft carrier that turned the tide of war. This volume of the "Military Might" series ably tells the story of the evolution and use of aircraft carriers in World War II. The narrative, along with numerous photographs, recounts the stunning events of the Pacific Theater of operations. Faced with the crushing defeat at Pearl Harbor, American military leaders were forced to count heavily upon their remaining aircraft carriers to counter the Japanese threat. Ultimately, vessels such as the Yorktown, Hornet, Enterprise, Lexington and Wasp helped to defeat the enemy. While the men who manned those ships were victorious, it was not without great cost. The author has created a valuable resource book by tracing the changing strategy involved in carrier warfare in the major battles of the Pacific War. This is a well-written historical work that will interest younger readers who desire to learn about World War II. 2001, Twenty-First Century Books, . Ages 10 up. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck.
School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-This brief volume begins with an interesting history of the evolution of aircraft carriers, followed by a discussion of the world situation in 1941 and the importance of the U.S. military bases at Pearl Harbor. Another chapter tells briefly of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The remainder of the text describes the major battles in the Pacific and the shift in the role of battleships as carriers became more important. The pages of text have wide margins. The large, black-and-white photos are not the ones usually seen in history texts. A map of the Japanese Empire appears on the endpapers. While not comprehensive, this book can serve as a springboard to many of the standard titles that should be available in most libraries. A good introduction for readers who are becoming familiar with this period of history.-Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
