Battleship vs Carrier: What we forget



In this video Military Aviation History (Bismarck) and I talk about an aspect that is often neglected by hindsight, namely that in WW2 the carrier not necessarily dominated the sea and that before 1942 there were quite many incidents were the engagements were not so clear cut as in the mid- to late-war Pacific engagements.
