To the US Navy they were CVEs! To the Royal Navy auxiliary carriers! To crews of endangered merchantmen in the Atlantic and Arctic oceans they were heaven-sent prot ection! To their crews they were Combustible, Vulnerable, Expendable! The need for air cover against enemy aircraft and submarines brought unprecedented demand for carriers.Over 100 vessels were converted on specially built for convoy duty. This is their story, warts and all.
