It's not often that I've read an account of aircraft carrier doctrine in the Pacific War that delved this deeply into the policies and doctrines that lay behind the war effort. I have other books with lengthy lists of ship names and commission dates but which say nothing of how the ships were used or what controversies went on behind the scenes. Fast Carriers not only does that, but highlights the tension between the "formalist" admirals and the "melee" admirals, which goes far in adding depth to our understanding of the contrast beteween the Battle of the Philippine Sea and the Battle of Leyte Gulf. I consider this book an important addition to my stock of WW2 naval histories.

This book presents a very well written and researched analysis of the creation of our current naval force. the carrier is still the key surface ship in our navy. I must admit that the carrier shares its duties with many vessels. With the exceptions of the submarine, and the guided missile, the carrier is our most valuable piece of naval hardware. It is understandable that the battleship group was reluctant to give up its preeminent position in our national defense. But the disaster at Pearl Harbor, forcefully removed the capital ship from the top of the list of naval assets. The carrier was and is the only weapon that can strike an enemy at great distances. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in carrier warfare, and carrier development, and the men who risked their lives to make the fast carriers a reality. JRV

This is the first non-textbook Kindle I bought, and I enjoyed reading it. It has led me to purchase other books on the subject.

Nevertheless, it has many flaws and misconceptions. It is clear that the author had a clear agenda in putting down officers not from an aviation background while putting aviators like Admirals Towers and Sherman on a pedestal. An example of his criticism of Admiral Spruance for still studying naval gunnery in his tenure as Naval War College President after the war. While true, Spruance also stressed the importance of "future naval warfare" involving atomic energy and guided weapons, and was a strong proponent of free thinking.

As long as you are aware that the author is a biased source, you should get a decent read out of it.

Had to get this used, and spent a lot for it. Tells one story - the development and employment of the fast carrier task force (TF 38/58), but talks equipment, doctrine, staffing, command, etc. As such, you do not get a complete overview of the campaigns, but you get context of operations as it applied to the carriers you will not read elsewhere. Would love to have seen more on the carriers themselves - the designs, advances, short-comings of the ships; what Mr. Reynolds included was tantalizing!
very historical book. My dads ship the USS Shangri-la was mentioned many times. Some of the names and task forces get confusing but I loved reading about how the fast carriers changed the war.
