Albano, Peter

Tagged: Author

(1922-2006) US author who served in the US Navy 1942-1946; he is known mainly for the nine-book Seventh Carrier sequence of Military SF adventures starring the World War Two Japanese aircraft carrier Yonaga, trapped for over forty years in a secret port by a shift of glacier ice. The crew and airmen, now mostly in their sixties, finally break free in late 1983. Owing to a rogue Chinese anti-missile system whose laser-armed satellites target and destroy modern jet engines and Weapons, the Yonaga is now the most powerful warship in existence; its crew proceeds to do good, with many air and sea battles. This series begins with The Seventh Carrier (1983) and ends with Super Carrier (1994). Albano's other novels, Waves of Glory (1989) and Tides of Valor (1990), are unremarkable. [JC/DRL]
