(Subject: Aviation - General) America's part in World War One saw the deployment of US Navy aircraft operating from coastal bases. In the immediate post-war period the first aircraft carriers were commissioned, Langley, Saratoga and Lexington. Following Pearl Harbor, US Navy fighters engaged the Japanese for the first time at Wake Island. Japan continued its conquest of the Pacific throughout 1941 but the USN then went on the offensive when two carriers attacked the Gilbert-Marshall Islands, and the Doolittle raid against Japan was launched from USS Hornet. Meanwhile in the Atlantic US Carriers undertook escort duties across Atlantic and helped with the supply of Spitfires to Malta. Post WW2 actions included the War in Korea and later, US Navy and Marine Corps aircraft were deployed from carriers against targets in North and South Vietnam. Most recent carrier deployments include both Gulf Wars and continuing middle-eastern conflicts.
