Synopsis

Synopsis

The USS Langley, the first American aircraft carrier, entered service in 1922. Despite being converted into an aircraft tender, it was the first step in a new direction for the US Navy and naval warfare. This book covers the design, development and operation of USN aircraft carriers built prior to World War II, including their aircraft and weaponry. It also explains their various successes and losses such as the first carrier vs carrier battle at Midway; the battle of the Coral Sea; the battle of the Philippine Sea; and the Operation Torch landings.

"I would recommend this book to anyone interested in Aircraft Carriers. Although not a “bible” it is a good value for the money." -Rui Matos, Model Shipwrights

"For those who want a concise and descriptive overview of US carriers during the early years of the war and as well as for modelers, this is an excellent book to reference." - Andrew Nguyen, World War II Database (October 2009)
