The US navel aviator of World War II played a pivotal part in the winning of the war. From the warm waters of the Pacific to the icy conditions of the Bering Sea, the naval aviator was on hand to fight the enemy in any and all conditions. Between 1940 and 1942 the training of the naval aviator lasted 11 months, divided into five separate and distinct phases. From phase one, known as the elimination or "E" base for short, through to final assignment to a carrier based squadron, the training was demanding and unrelenting. This title examines the life and experiences of the US naval aviator in all three types of carrier squadron - fighters (VF), dive-bombers (VB) and the torpedo squadrons (VT). From recruitment to battle, the detail of what it was like to fly and fight for the US Navy is brought to life in this volume.
