Uss Ranger: The Navy's First Flattop from Keel to Mast, 1934-46
Robert J. Cressman, Potomac Books Inc 2003-11-01
USS Ranger (CV-4) was the U.S. Navy's first aircraft carrier to be built as such from the keel up. In peacetime, the Ranger helped maintain Franklin D. Roosevelt's Good Neighbour Policy, served as a platform for the development of new methods for the operation of carriers and carrier aircraft, continued the Navy's work in cold-weather flight operations, pioneered director-controlled anti-aircraft fire, and trained many naval aviators. During World War II, the Ranger occupied centre stage in Operation Torch (against the Vichy French positions in North Africa in 1942) and Operation Leader (against German shipping in 1943), which was the U.S. Navy's only carrier operation above the Arctic Circle during the war.
