This is a one-hour documentary about US Navy carriers since their inception after World War 1. It covers most of the important historical aspects of carrier aviation in the US Navy, and if you aren't very familiar with our Navy it is a fair overview to start with. The narration, however, is awful. Why produce a documentary like this and not bother to get a professional voice-over? It seriously hurts the effort overall.

A reasonable documentary painting in overly-broad strokes the history of US Navy aircraft carriers.

Spiced by a narrative voice with the subtlety of the more sober Sunday afternoon sports commentaries, the recitation is appropriate for this script deficient in thesaurus research for alternatives to repetitively growled words like "decisive."

Very nicely selected and edited historical visual footage. Included with the package is a well illustrated and laid out 26 page booklet, which is almost as informative as the video itself.

This pleasant opus is fine for audiences who know nothing-to-little about carrier history, or who enjoy self-congratulatory pats on the back to US military power. Those inclined to less self-serving, meatier presentations, will be able to watch it once without feeling like they wasted 40 minutes of their life, after which it will be a dust gatherer.

For either audience, it's easier for me to envision this effort more in library or rental outlet for free/cheap viewing than purchased for a space-taking private collection.

This video almost has the feel of a recruiting aid for Naval Recruiters to give to prospective recruits, except its focus is too narrow. Its delivery is factual but poor, and it vastly overstates the role or importance of the aircraft carrier in many cases or events with very lopsided delivery of information. This presentation is almost propagandist in nature. I'm glad I didn't spend money on this, but sorry I lost 40 plus minutes of valuable time.
