"Based on official records, personal interviews, private diaries, and an impressive array of published works, this classic study offers a complete record of the heated debates that took place over the concept of the fast carrier and the U.S. Navy's metamorphosis from a battleship-oriented to a carrier-centered fleet during World War II. The battle of the air admirals, such as Mitscher, Towers, Radford, and the Shermans, to gain control of the fleet from the battleship admirals, in the midst of war, is nowhere told more fully or with such an insider's grasp of personalities involved with the changing naval strategy."--BOOK JACKET. "Clark G. Reynolds's thorough analysis of fast carrier operations takes the reader from the war rooms in Washington to the flight decks in the Pacific with ease and excitement. It is his willingness to pass critical judgment on personalities and events, and his ability to communicate clearly the bureaucratic squabbles and the fight against the foreign enemy, that puts this book far above any other work in its field. Now, twenty-four years after its first publication, The Fast Carriers remains essential reading for naval professionals and historians - evidence of its strong scholarship and enduring value in the face of a naval strategy again in flux."--BOOK JACKET. "Illustrated with more than 90 photographs and completed with a dramatis personae, extensive appendixes, chapter notes, and bibliographic essay, this reprint introduces a new generation of readers to a frank and thoughtful study of the genesis of the carrier fleet."--BOOK JACKET

"After graduating from the U.S. Naval Academy during World War I, J.J. "Jocko" Clark went on to become a pioneer in one of the great transformations of the U.S. Navy - - the change from surface-only force to one in which aviation played a major role. Under the leadership of the key aviation admirals, William A. Moffett and Ernest J. King, Clark helped develop carrier doctrine and airplanes until the outbreak of World War II. As captain of the new aircraft carrier Yorktown, he provided aggressive leadership in the capture of the Gilbert and Marshall Islands. As a carrier task group commander he was instrumental in the brilliant victory at the Battle of the Philippine Sea and in the Okinawa campaign. After the war he fought to save naval aviation from the attacks of other services and went on to serve as Commander of the Seventh Fleet in the Korean War, where his innovative "Cherokee Strikes" played a crucial role. Worshipped by his men but despised by others for his "call-'em-as-I-see-'em" method of leadership, the flamboyant Jocko Clark was respected by all. Raised in Indian Territory (later Oklahoma), he became the highest-ranking naval officer of Native American descent in U.S. history. With access to family papers and as coauthor of Admiral Clark's 1967 autobiography, Clark Reynolds is well suited to bring the last of the colorful, old-school American naval leaders to life. Accompanying this book is a sixty-minute CD filled with excerpts of interviews conducted by the author with Admirals Clark, Arleigh Burke, and George Anderson, along with several other notable naval figures."--Jacket flap
