This website here has a lot of great stuff, its worth a look.

I'll get you guys started off with an old Navy video about analog fire control computers. You have to admit it was some pretty smart dudes who thought of these mechanisms to perform computational tasks we take for granted. I stumbled across it because it's relevant to my mechatronics coursework. But beyond that, there'es lots of great stuff about ships guns, carrier ops, etc.

Plus, there's just a certain intangible allure to the 1950's style. Cool

Haha, yes, I forgot to mention all of that. Great segment on pitching-deck carrier landings.
