Many aircraft carrier pictures I’d never seen before, this book is a complete history2017年10月29日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I loved reading this e-book Aircraft Carriers of the United States Navy: Rare Photographs from Wartime Archives. This e-book describes every class of carrier from the USS Langley to the Nimitz-class with all the variations in within each class. I had not seen more than 80% of the black-and-white photographs of representative carriers. The book describes some of the differences between British and American carriers, and what attributes that the United States took from the British to make American carriers potentially more survivable during attacks. I learned many things while reading the book, but one of the most interesting was that at one time some members of the Navy wanted aircraft carriers to be able to launch nuclear weapons. Certain prototype airplanes/jets were developed to carry nuclear weapons potentially. Maybe there’s a book out there that has more black-and-white pictures of American carriers, but I doubt that you could find an e-book that would cost less than this. If you interested in the history of American aircraft carriers this is the book for you.

Wonderful Photo History!2018年7月3日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
This is a wonderfully written and lavishly illustrated history of American aircraft carriers - from origin to the current day. During WWII, American industry built more than 150 light, heavy and support carriers. Today's carriers are more than 1,100 feet long, carry almost 100 aircraft, and displace more than 100,000 tons. This book is a visual feast for all navy and carrier enthusiasts!

I’m retired Navy, 1966-1991. I enjoyed reading the history of the early years of carrier aviation and how the force was developed by the US, Britain and Japan.
