This meticulously researched and illustrated book is split into two sections, the first focusing on the history of the aircraft carrier, and the second of naval aircraft. The first part of the book chronicles the first ships to launch primitive aircraft, through to today's modern warships. The second half of the book explores the evolution of naval aircraft, from the days when biplanes were catapulted from converted destroyers through to the jet aircraft patrolling the world's seas today. Lavishly illustrated with over 1100 identification photographs, this unique book provides readers with key information about aircraft carriers and naval aviation from the early 20th century to today.About the Author:
