Description

The U.S Navy had a few carriers before World War II, but that conflict showed just how powerful these floating airfields were. The carrier fleet was instrumental in the Allied victory in the Pacific, a triumph that lead to the development of larger carriers that lead to the nuclear-powered Nimitz-class supercarriers and the successor Ford-class.

Noted military author Michael Green outlines a century of that history in Images of War: Aircraft Carriers of the United States Navy. From Langley and Lexington to Enterprise and Nimitz, the 208-page softcover covers the classes of carrier deployed by the Navy. Organized into four roughly chronological chapters — Pre-war Carriers, Wartime Carriers, Post-war Carriers , and Nuclear-powered Carriers — the book features hundreds of photos of all of these classes under construction and in service. It is a perfect introduction the history of this fascinating modeling subject, but there is inspiration on every page.
