Best Answer

Relations between the US and Germany were very strained as a result of the German policy of unstrestricted submarine warfare. In 1915 the sinking of the Lusitania played a key role in turning opinion in the US against Germany. In 1916 an attack on the Sussex resulted in Germany giving a solemn pledge not to attack pssanger vessels. However, a year later, Germany revoked this pledge. There was also the Zimmermann telegram.

Probably the Yorktown class: USS Yorktown, USS Hornet, USS Enterprise, and the single USS Wasp. USS Lexington had already been sunk prior to the Guadalcanal campaign. And the Light & Escort carriers hadn't arrived on station yet. USS Ranger was kept in the Atlantic, considered too vulnerable for Pacific work.
