During the early stage of World War II, the German Navy U-Boat submarines posed a great threat to the Allied Forces in the North Atlantic Ocean.
To counter them, new destroyers were built to escort transport vessels, as well as escort
carriers that could provided constant air protection to the convoys for the length of their journey across the Atlantic.
This type of escort carrier was a modification from certain types of merchant vessels.
The U.S. Navy made extensive developments and used them for convoy escort and aircraft transportation.
