Cool! "Task Force 1" was also the name given to the American battleships repaired after Pearl Harbor and reinforced from the Atlantic. Most folks think that after Pearl Harbor the US had no battleships in the Pacific for quite a while, but by February 1942 there were eight fully operational battleships stationed on the West Coast. Later they were transferred to Pearl Harbor. There was such a shortage of oilers to supply the fuel-hungry battleships that it was impossible to really use them until later in the war.

What happened to the CVE classes used during WWII? If he's going to included a projected but never built class of carrier he should include the numerous and very valuable CVEs (known by their crews as Combustible Vulnerable and Expendable ships).

Hrm. Missing the CVEs on the active-service ship poster.

Also missing Wolverine (IX-64) and Sable (IX-81), the Great Lakes training carriers, where over 17,000 US naval aviators first qualified for carrier landings!
