Axis Allies War At Sea

"A powerful Navy we have always regarded as our proper and natural means of defense; and it has always been of defense that we have thought, never of aggression or of conquest. But who shall tell us now what sort of Navy to build? We shall take leave to be strong upon the seas, in the future as in the past; and there will be no thought of offense or provocation in that. Our ships are our natural bulwarks."
-President Woodrow Wilson

"For in this modern world, the instruments of warfare are not solely for waging war. Far more importantly, they are the means for controlling peace. Naval officers must therefore understand not only how to fight a war, but how to use the tremendous power which they operate to sustain a world of liberty and justice, without unleashing the powerful instruments of destruction and chaos that they have at their command."
-Admiral Arleigh Burke

"Preparedness for naval war - preparedness against naval attack and for naval offense - is preparedness for anything that is likely to occur."
-Admiral Alfred Thayer Mahan - The Interest of America in Sea Power

For the first time in war, aircraft buzzed overhead, searching for submarines, surface ships and other aircraft.
