Table of Contents
- THE CARRIER TASK FORCE IN WORLD WAR II
By Lieutenant William H. Hessler, U. S. Naval Reserve
The Fast Carrier Task Force has appeared so often in new dispatches, has become os much a commonplace in this war of unnumbered innovations, that its uniqueness tends to escape notice. It represents in fact a revolution in Naval war, and more completely than did the invention of the submarine or torpedo.
- THE ROAD AHEAD
By Captain K. C. McIntosh (S.C.), U. S. Navy (Retired)
The cessation of formal hostilities will not bring peace, but only problems -- only the end of large-scale belligerent action along the old lines, and a necessity for regouping the worldinto a cohesive pattern.
- THEY PIONEERED A CHANNEL TO TOKYO
By Commander Harold Bradley Say, U. S. Naval Reserve
To one familiar with the work of the Navy's Underwater Demolition teams, the notes conveyed a comprehensive picture prior to the last major landing in the war against Japan.

The rules of classification are the business of professional naval personnel, both military and technical. They should not be promulgated by laymen.
