Very good documentary. Still waiting for part 2...



The Japanese Fleet Air Arm was miles ahead of anyone at the time and their carrier flight operation was insanely quick and efficient.

Val Larralde -

He explains carrier tactics really well, and why the Japanese admiral made the decisions that he did.

 

 

Also illustrated just how bad ass the japanese task force was and why losing those pilots and seamen was such a huge blow, on top.of the material losses

If I had one wish, then i'd be that Carlin would make a hardcore history about naval battles. 

He once did a single battle, which was some of the best podcasting I had ever heard.

The carnage of WWII was crazy.

Hope we never see that kind of war again.
