In 1910, less than seven years after the Wright brothers first flew a plane from the ground, Eugene Ely flew a plane from a ship. His daring exploit marked the beginning of the most important change in the long history of sea power.

In this book Captain Edmund L. Castillo tells the story of carrier aviation—from the first shaky flights of the pioneers, through the dramatic carrier battles of World War II, to the efficient operations of a modern nuclear-powered carrier.
