Re: Carrier planes not good enough for aerial reconnaissance?

I know nothing about the book you mention but it was the general view at the time of the Gilbert and Marshall invasions that carrier-based aircraft could not obtain the type of coverage necessary for planning an amphibious landing. As the War went on and equipment and techniques developed, this ceased to be the case.
