Example text

50 There was some movement back toward larger carriers once the budget constraints of the 1920s were loosened a bit after Franklin Roosevelt, a naval enthusiast, took office in 1933. At first it was a work relief effort, and later a response to growing Nazi and Japanese threats—including that implied by the Japanese refusal to renew the naval disarmament arrangements past December 31, 1936. These later ships included the Hornet, Wasp, Yorktown, and Enterprise. ) The Wasp was not far from the Ranger in displacement and spent most of her combat life in the Atlantic, though she came to an early end in September 1942 in the South Pacific, falling to a Japanese submarine.

The design of a higher-speed successor was imperative, and that was the F6F Hellcat—which helped win the war but which was generally too hot in landing aboard a small-deck, slow-speed carrier. ) 19 20 Airpower and Technology There was little anticipation of radar in either the Japanese or the US Navy until late in the 1930s. In any event, the offensive spirit was strong in both services, and deck space was so short that the incentives were great to put as much offensive power as possible on that which was available.

It could get its standoff by flying at very high altitudes; it could get its precision by flying in daylight and using advanced bombsight technology. Once those nodal targets were hit, the entire enemy industrial system would tend to collapse, and capitulation would necessarily follow.
