Product Description

Review

"The superlative images in the book are further enhanced by the artwork of Tony Bryan... this is a book that ship fans will just have to have in their libraries and the rest of us will find it an excellent primer on the types." -Scott Van Aken, "modelingmadness.com"

"The book does its job well in describing the Essex and Independence class carriers. There are also many photographs and paintings of the carriers while either on a regular cruise or in combat actions. In all, a good book from Osprey to read for those interested in US carriers and their operations." - Andrew Nguyen, "ww2db.com" (October 2009)

By me on 16 Dec. 2010
Format: Paperback
Bit on the thin side but adequate for the price. Covers the basics but not in too much detail so ideal for beginner but not as good for someone with a bit of knowledge of the aircraft scene. Ideal starting book, if it can be called a book.

Format: Paperback
An excellent almost pocket reference book on the US navys war winners. A good place to start on a huge subject. Some very good pictures and diagrams and lots of technical information. Read with the similar book on the pre-war classes.
