Aircraft Carrier (Pre-Jet)

A stunning look at the development of this vital war machine. From its conception in 1910, then a mere converted Merchant ship to the purpose built carriers of that era.

This DVD details the designs, adaptations and systems used throughout these indispensable Carriers, a major component in Sea to Air / Ground warfare. Follow the joint developments of the aircraft and the carrier as technology progressed through to the Second World War. Arguably without them, the Allied forces may have never succeeded in winning the Pacific War.

This action packed documentary film captures all the destruction and devastation caused by Air and Sea Warfare, watch as Kamikaze pilots fulfil their suicide missions; ultimately the Pacific Fleet's deadliest foe.

This film illustrates the bravery, heroism and skill of the crews; both onboard and in the air.
