Author John E. Nevolaabout this book: This is a short book, in the style of a novella. I always wondered where the aircraft carriers were while absent during the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941. They were the highest priority target of the Japanese when they planned the attack. They uses six of their front-line aircraft carriers to conduct the raid and caused substantial damage to the American Pacific Fleet. Yet, Admiral Yamamoto considered the raid a failure because no American carriers were caught in port.

Having survived the raid, the carriers were the only weapon available to blunt the Japanese expansion in the Pacific. This short book discloses where they were exactly, why they were there, chronicles the role they played in the first (1942) year of the war and demonstrates how instrumental they were in turning the tide in the war in the Pacific.

Veterans, relatives of veterans and World War Two buffs have enjoyed this book immensely.

The war was in doubt in 1942 and America lacked the experience, weaponry and numbers of the Japanese in all aspects of war. The aircraft carrier was the single most important weapon America had in the Pacific and through skill tactics and strategy and the courage of a few brave pilots, the survivors of Pearl Harbor wrote their own chapter in history.
