This book is a disappointment. By 1982, there was much known about the evolution of the first new type of warship in thousands of years. Time-Life books are usually much more enlightening but this one fails on many points.

I'm a nut about aircraft carriers and the war in the South Pacific, and I think this is the best book I've ever read on the subject. The author starts with the development of fast carriers in the 20's and 30's, then talks about the early days of World War II when both the Japanese and American navies knew they had a powerful offensive weapon, didn't quite know how to use it. He finishes with America's success in developing carrier task forces and Air Admirals. If you are interested in this subject, you can't do better than this in one volume.… (mais)

Good overview, excellent pictures with sufficient narrative to be a good overview or first book on this critical ship type that changed naval warfare. A rare mention of the minor but useful role of British Carriers late in the war. Would have benefited from a section on ship differences; armored vs non decks, good fire and damage control vs little or none. This latter being a critical difference between US and Japan successes in saving even seriously damaged ships.

Probably the best overall treatment of the development and use of U.S. Navy carriers in World War II.
