TURN INTO THE WIND V2: US Navy, Royal Navy, Royal Australian Navy, and Royal Canadian Navy Light Fleet Aircraft Carriers in the Korean War and through end of service, 1950-1982
Volume 2 follows the light carriers and their crews from the Korean War into the modern era. Following the Korean War, Australia acquired two additional former Royal Navy light fleet carriers and Canada three as centerpieces for their naval fixed air programs. Former CVLs served in new roles during the Cold War/Vietnam War: USS Wright as a 'doomsday' afloat White House, HMAS Sydney as a troop transport, and USS Arlington as a communications link between the Pentagon and commanders in the field.
Includes 155 photographs, maps, and diagrams; appendices; and an index to full names, places, and subjects.
