The Battle of the Philippine Sea was a decisive naval battle of World War II which eliminated the Imperial Japanese Navy's ability to conduct large-scale carrier actions. It took place during the United States' amphibious invasion of the Mariana Islands during the Pacific War.

The battle was the last of 5 major "carrier-versus-carrier" engagements between American and Japanese naval forces, and involved elements of the United States Navy's 5th Fleet as well as ships and land-based aircraft from the Imperial Japanese Navy's Mobile Fleet and nearby island garrisons.

The Battle of the Philippine Sea cost Allied forces 123 aircraft while the Japanese lost 3 carriers, 2 oilers, and approximately 600 aircraft. The devastation wrought by American pilots on June 19 led one to comment "Why, hell it was just like an old-time turkey shoot down home!” This led to the aerial fight earning the name "The Great Marianas Turkey Shoot."

With the Japanese air arm crippled, their carriers only became useful as decoys and were deployed as such at the Battle of Leyte Gulf.

The presentation covers the following:
